I am happy to announce the General Availability of Gluster 4.0 for
CentOS 7 on x86_64. These packages are following the upstream Gluster
Community releases, and will receive monthly bugfix updates.

Gluster 4.0 is a Short-Term-Maintenance release, and will only receive
updates until the next version (4.1) becomes available. 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 7 can now simply install Gluster 4.0 with only these two
commands:

  # yum install centos-release-gluster40
  # yum install glusterfs-server

The centos-release-gluster40 package is delivered via CentOS Extras
repos. This contains all the metadata and dependancy information, needed
to install Gluster 4.0.

Note that the standard centos-release-gluster (virtual) package is
still available and points to the 3.12 version. This is intentional
because 3.12 is a Long-Term-Maintenance version and does not require
users to update the major versions avery couple of months. Some
deployments may need to install the centos-release-gluster package as
well as centos-release-gluster40 to fullfill dependencies for other
projects (possibly for oVirt, there may be others).

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
  https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Storage/gluster-Quickstart

More details about the packages that the Gluster project provides in the
Storage SIG is available in the documentation:
  https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Storage/Gluster

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 proboems, 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)
available can be found here:
  https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Storage/Gluster/Ecosystem-pkgs

We welcome all feedback, comments and contributions. You can get in
touch with the CentOS Storage SIG on the centos-devel mailing list
( https://lists.centos.org ) and with the Gluster developer and user
communities at https://www.gluster.org/mailman/listinfo , we are also
available on irc at #gluster on irc.freenode.net, and on twitter at
@gluster .
