[linux-lvm] [Announce] device-mapper beta3 (fast snapshots)



Beta3 of device-mapper is now available at:

   ftp://ftp.sistina.com/pub/LVM2/device-mapper/device-mapper-beta3.0.tgz

The accompanying LVM2 toolset:

   ftp://ftp.sistina.com/pub/LVM2/tools/LVM2.0-beta3.0.tgz

The main addition for this release is high performance persistent
snapshots, see http://people.sistina.com/~thornber/snap_performance.html
for a comparison with LVM1 and EVMS.

Please be warned that snapshots will deadlock under load on 2.4.18
kernels due to a bug in the VM syste, 2.4.19-pre8 works fine.

pvmove is now the only major feature that LVM2 lacks compared with
LVM1.
