[linux-lvm] [ANNOUNCE] LVM reimplementation ready for beta testing


Sistina is pleased to announce that the LVM2 software is ready for
beta testing.

This is a complete reimplementation of the existing LVM system, both
driver and userland tools.

We encourage you to give it a try and feed back your test results,
bug-fixes, enhancement requests etc. through the normal lists
linux-lvm sistina com and lvm-devel sistina com 

The new kernel driver (known as "device-mapper") supports volume
management in general and is no longer Linux LVM specific.
As such it is a separate package from LVM2 which you will need
to download and install before building LVM2.


The userland tools are available from here:


This release does not support snapshots or pvmove.  These features
will go into a subsequent beta release, hopefully within the next

This is Beta software which is *not* meant to be running on your
production systems.  If necessary, keep backups of your data and LVM
metadata (/etc/lvmconf/*).

We look forward to your feedback.

The Sistina LVM team:

      Patrick Caulfield,
      Alasdair Kergon,
      Heinz Mauelshagen,
      Joe Thornber
