NexentaStor 3.0.5 available now

NexentaStor 3.0.5 is now available.

Apart from fixing some key bugs, the main thing that this release includes is a significant update to the CIFS stack, which addresses both performance concerns, and AD failover concerns.

Note that NS 3.1 is due out *any day now*, and will include all these changes, plus a boat load of others. I'll have a lot more to say about the 3.1 release soon.

Thanks although we didn't ran into the bugs mentioned, they're appreciated :-)

This update came almost in perfect time for a reboot. (Also that 3.0.5 core sources have been published in nexenta-gate)

I'm waiting eagerly for NexentaStor 3.1 - is there any news on its progress?

3.1 "Any day now"? 5 days ago the bits were being published? This is not especially confidence inspiring.

lidd: there was a critical problem which held up 3.1 -- it was not an easy problem to diagnose, and in fact it was an existing problem in 3.0.5, but having the fix was deemed important enough to hold up the release.

In the meantime, we also were able to integrate some new functionality (thereby avoid an interim micro release) for VAAI, and disk management support (giving better visual management capabilities for JBODs.)

So while the delay was very unfortunate, ultimately, we did what we felt was right for our customers.
