The Gluster community is pleased to announce the release of 4.1, our latest long term supported release.

This is a major release that includes a range of features enhancing management, performance, monitoring, and providing newer functionality like thin arbiters, cloud archival, time consistency. It also contains several bug fixes.

A selection of the important features and changes are documented on this [1] page.


1. As 4.0 was a short term maintenance release, features which have been included in that release are available with 4.1.0 as well. These features may be of interest to users upgrading to 4.1.0 from older than 4.0 releases. The 4.0 release notes captures the list of features that were introduced with 4.0.
