    I am happy to announce the General Availability of Gluster 4.1 for
    CentOS 6 on x86_64. These packages are following the upstream Gluster
    Community releases, and will receive monthly bugfix updates.

    Gluster 4.1 is a Long-Term-Maintenance release, and will receive
    updates for approximately 18 months. The difference between
    Long-Term-Maintenance and Short-Term-Maintenance releases is explained
    on the Gluster release schedule page:

    Users of CentOS 6 can now simply install the Gluster 4.1 clients with
    only these two commands:

    # yum install centos-release-gluster
    # yum install glusterfs-fuse

    Note that Gluster 4.x do not provide the glusterfs-server package for
    CentOS 6 anymore. Users that run their Gluster Storage Servers on CentOS
    6 are strongly encouraged to plan moving to CentOS 7.

    The centos-release-gluster package is delivered via CentOS Extras repos.
    This contains all the metadata and dependency information, needed to
    install Gluster 4.1. The actual package that will get installed is
    centos-release-gluster41. Users of the now End-Of-Life
    Short-Term-Maintenance Gluster 4.0 will automatically get the update to
    Gluster 4.1, whereas users of Gluster 3.12 can stay on that
    Long-Term-Maintenance release for an other six months.

    Users of Gluster 3.10 will need to manually upgrade by uninstalling the
    centos-release-gluster310 package, and replacing it with either the
    Gluster 4.1 or 3.12 version. Additional details about the upgrade
    process are linked in the announcement from the Gluster Community:

    We have a quickstart guide specifically built around the packages are
    available, it makes for a good introduction to Gluster and will help get
    you started in just a few simple steps, this quick start is available at

    More details about the packages that the Gluster project provides in the
    Storage SIG is available in the documentation:

    The centos-release-gluster* repositories offer additional packages that
    enhance the usability of Gluster itself. Utilities and tools that were
    working with previous versions of Gluster are expected to stay working
    fine. If there are any problems, or requests for additional tools and
    applications to be provided, just send us an email with your
    suggestions. The current list of packages that is (planned to become)
    available can be found here:
