    May 12, 2020

    Dear MooseFS Users,

    We are happy to announce that MooseFS 3.0.113 is now stable!

    ๐Ÿ›  This is both bugfix and feature release. Apart from fixing the issues that were recently found, it introduces:

    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Support for new extra attributes: immutable, appendonly, undeletable.
      ๐Ÿ“‡ Extra attributes are MooseFS-specific feature that allows you to add / manage a small portion of metadata to files on MooseFS. There are several extra attributes and they change file system behaviour (apart from new ones mentioned above there are several more โ€“ please refer to man mfseattr for more information).
    • Topology grouping when new chunks are about to be created,
    • Readonly mode and locking in MooseFS Block Device,
    • Changing subfolder during internal rebalance,
    • ๐Ÿ”ง Official labels format defined in chunkserver configuration,

    and several more features.

    ๐Ÿš€ This release improves Chunkserver a lot (registering chunks to Master Server, reporting damaged chunks, internal rebalance, reloading, calculating size limits, handling inode limits on underlying file systems). It also adds new and improves existing workarounds to issues related to OS's kernels and improves directory entry invalidator introduced in MooseFS 3.0.112.

    ๐Ÿš€ We would like to thank all the contributors who helped us making this release, especially (alphabetically):
    ๐Ÿ‘ท @borkd, @eleaner, @jSML4ThWwBID69YC, @onlyjob, @rafamiga, @tamas-ac.
