Gluster blog stories provide high-level spotlights on our users all over the world
We are calling out our users, and developers to contribute in validating ‘glusterfs-6.0rc0’ build in their usecase. Specially for the cases of upgrade, stability, and performance.
Some of the key highlights of the release are listed in release-notes draft. Please note that there are some of the features which are being dropped out of this release, and hence making sure your setup is not going to have an issue is critical. Also the default `lru-limit` option in fuse mount for Inodes should help to control the memory usage of client processes. All the good reason to give it a shot in your test setup.
If you are developer using gfapi interface to integrate with other projects, you also have some signature changes, so please make sure your project would work with latest release. Or even if you are using a project which depends on gfapi, report the error with new RPMs (if any). We will help fix it.
As part of test days, we want to focus on testing the latest upcoming release i.e. GlusterFS-6, and one or the other gluster volunteers would be there on #gluster channel on freenode to assist the people. Some of the key things we are looking as bug reports are:
