Important happenings for Gluster for May:

3.11 Release!

Our 3.11 release is officially out!

https://blog.gluster.org/2017/05/announcing-gluster-3-11/

Note that this is a short term supported release.

Gluster Summit 2017!

Gluster Summit 2017 will be held in Prague, Czech Republic on October 27 and 28th. We’ll be opening a call for papers for this instead of having an application process to attend.

Our weekly community meeting has changed: we’ll be meeting every other week instead of weekly, moving the time to 15:00 UTC, and our agenda is at: https://bit.ly/gluster-community-meetings

We hope this means that more people can join us. Kaushal outlines the changes on the mailing list: http://lists.gluster.org/pipermail/gluster-devel/2017-January/051918.html
