Hi Shyam,

I want to add https://github.com/gluster/glusterfs/issues/363 also for 
4.1. It is not a new feature but rather an enhancement to a volume 
option in AFR. I don't think it can qualify as a bug fix, so mentioning 
it here just in case it needs to be tracked too. The (only) patch is 
undergoing review cycles.
