We are happy to announce the General Availability of Gluster 3.8 for
CentOS Linux 6. Earlier versions (3.6 and 3.7) are still available and
will keep receiving updates until the upstream Gluster Community marks
them End-Of-Life.

GlusterFS 3.8 brings many improvements and new functionalities. These
are documented in the 3.8.0 release notes:

To install GlusterFS 3.8, only two commands are needed:

  # yum install centos-release-gluster
  # yum install glusterfs-server

The centos-release-gluster content comes from the
centos-release-gluster38 package delivered via CentOS Extras repos. This
contains all the metadata and dependancy information, needed to install
GlusterFS 3.8.

Deployments that have centos-release-gluster36 or -gluster37 installed
will not automatically upgrade to version 3.8. These installations will
continue to stick to their current stable version with minor updates.

The existing quickstart guide will still work with the new version of
Gluster. In fact, we do not expect to see any issues with use-cases that
work on 3.7 already. Installation and configuration is the same in the
new version:

More details about the packages that the Gluster project provides in the
Storage SIG is available in the documentation:

The centos-release-gluster* repositories offer additional packages that
enhance the usability of Gluster itself. Users can request additional
tools and applications to be provided, just send us an email with your
suggestions. The current list of packages that is (planned to become)
available can be found here:

These Gluster repositories and packages are provided through the Storage
SIG. General information about the SIG can be read in the wiki:
