Hi All,

The Gluster Community is very pleased to announce release-10, the latest one in the Gluster stable.

This is a major release that includes a range of code improvements and stability fixes along with a few features as noted below. A selection of the key features and changes are documented in this [1] page.


1. Releases that receive maintenance updates post-release 10 is 9 (reference)
2. Release 10 will receive maintenance updates around the 15th of every alternative month, and release 9 will receive maintenance updates around 15th every three months. [2]
3.  For upgrading to release-10, refer to the release 10 upgrade guide [3].
4. Gluster -10 might take some time to reflect in latest OS repos. If found missing, please upgrade using Packages : [4]
5. Gluster-8.x series is EOL and no longer supported. Please feel free to upgrade [3].

Make sure you are not using any of the following deprecated features :

- Block device (bd) xlator
- Decompounder feature
- Crypt xlator
- Symlink-cache xlator
- Stripe feature
- Tiering support (tier xlator and changetimerecorder)
- Glupy

Highlights of this release are:
  • Major performance improvement of ~20% w.r.t small files as well as large files testing in controlled lab environments #2771
NOTE: The above improvement requires tcmalloc library to be enabled for building. We have tested and verified tcmalloc in X86_64 platforms and is enabled only for x86_64 builds in the current release.
  • Randomized port selection for bricks, improves startup time #786
  • Performance improvement with use of readdir instead of readdirp in fix-layout #2241
  • Heal time improvement with bigger window size #2067

Major issues:
- None

Bugs addressed are provided towards the end, in the release notes [1]

Thank You,
Saju Mohammed
