Subject: ANNOUNCE: mdadm 2.6.5 - A tool for managing Soft RAID under Linux
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.raid
Date: Thursday 15th May 2008 05:53:52 UTC (over 8 years ago)
I am pleased to announce the availability of
   mdadm version 2.6.5

It is available at the usual places:
   countrycode=xx.
   http://www.${countrycode}kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/raid/mdadm/
and via git at
   git://neil.brown.name/mdadm
   http://neil.brown.name/git?p=mdadm

mdadm is a tool for creating, managing and monitoring
device arrays using the "md" driver in Linux, also
known as Software RAID arrays.

Release 2.6.5 adds a few minor bug fixes to 2.6.4

Changelog Entries:
    -   Avoid segfault when parsing /proc/mdstat with auto-read-only
	arrays.
    -   Fix problem with failing to add devices to v.large (>4TB) arrays,
	cause by problems with device-size overflow.
    -   For v0.90 superblocks, print the 'Events' count as a real count,
	not 2 numbers separated by a dot.
    -   Updates some URLs in the man page.
    -   Allow creation of a RAID6 with exactly one missing device.
    -   Use LOG_PID for syslog, so you get the pid of mdadm in the log
	files.
    -   --export now works with --examine too (not just --detail)
    -   Improve auto-creation of device special file when using
        --incremental
    -   Simple locking for --incremental so mdadm doesn't get confused
	when run concurrently with itself.
    -   Make --incremental cope better with arrays that are being reshaped.

Development of mdadm is sponsored by
 SUSE Labs, Novell Inc.
