[Linux-cluster] gfs2-utils 3.1.5 Released


gfs2-utils 3.1.5 has been released. This version features bug fixes and performance enhancements for fsck.gfs2 in particular, better handling of symlinks in mkfs.gfs2, a small block manipulation language to aid future testing, a gfs2_lockcapture script which replaces gfs2_lockgather, and various other minor enhancements and bug fixes.

The mount.gfs2 helper utility has been removed as it is no longer required to mount gfs2 file systems. gfs2_tool and gfs2_quota have also been removed. Users of gfs2_quota should now use the generic quota utilities and users of gfs2_tool should now use tunegfs2, gfs2 mount options and the generic dmsetup and chattr/lsattr tools.

See below for a full list of changes. The source tarball is available from:
