Some highlights IRT LVM2/device-mapper
(see www.sistina.com for download information):

- device-mapper has been accepted as the future generic mapping driver
  for the 2.5 kernel

- tools are LVM1 ondisk metadata compatible

- atomic updates on ondisk metadata and multiple metadata copies for
  extended resilience

- config file support for device name filters, logging levels and more

- LVM shell to avoid overhead on mass changes reloading the tools on
  every change

- generic device mapping with a much smaller driver (aka device-mapper)

- arbitrary mapping modules can be added at runtime

- RAID0 LVs can beextended beyond physical volume limits
