I am happy to announce the General Availability of Gluster 3.12 for
CentOS 6 on x86_64. These packages are following the upstream Gluster
Community releases, and will receive monthly bugfix updates.

Gluster 3.12 is a Long-Term-Maintenance release, and will receive
updates for approximately 18 months. The difference between
Long-Term-Maintenance and Short-Term-Maintenance releases is explained
on the Gluster release schedule page:
  https://www.gluster.org/community/release-schedule/

Users of CentOS 6 can now simply install Gluster 3.12 with only these two
commands:

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

The centos-release-gluster package is delivered via CentOS Extras repos.
This contains all the metadata and dependency information, needed to
install Gluster 3.12. The actual package that will get installed is
centos-release-gluster312. Users of the now End-Of-Life
Short-Term-Maintenance Gluster 3.11 will automatically get the update to
Gluster 3.12, whereas users of Gluster 3.10 can stay on that
Long-Term-Maintenance release for an other six months.

Users of Gluster 3.8 will need to manually upgrade by uninstalling the
centos-release-gluster38 package, and replacing it with either the
Gluster 3.12 or 3.10 version. Additional details about the upgrade
process are linked in the announcement from the Gluster Community:
  http://lists.gluster.org/pipermail/announce/2017-September/000082.html

We have a quickstart guide specifically built around the packages are
available, it makes for a good introduction to Gluster and will help get
you started in just a few simple steps, this quick start is available at

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. Utilities and tools that were
working with previous versions of Gluster are expected to stay working
fine. If there are any problems, or requests for 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)
