Release Notes: This significant release included improved reshape support, improved DDF support, hot replace, and bad-block-log functionality. Array names can now have names (md_home) instead of just numbers (md0). There were several minor new features and many bugfixes.
Release Notes: This stability release adds a number of bugfixes to 3.2.5. There are no real standout fixes, just lots of little bits and pieces.
Release Notes: This release fixes a serious regression that caused adding a device with "--add" to sometimes fail when it should not. This did not cause any risk to data. The "--layout=preserve" option for "--grow" was fixed.
Release Notes: This is largely a bugfix release for the 3.2 series with many minor fixes with little or no impact. Some notable inclusions are: an --offroot argument to improve interactions between mdmon and initrd; a --prefer argument to select which /dev names to display in some circumstances; and relaxed restrictions on when "--add" will be allowed. A bug with adding write-intent-bitmap to an active array has been fixed. The default has been changed to use "/run/mdadm" for storing run-time files.
Release Notes: Stability fixes were made. IMSM metadata reshape (OnLine Capacity Expansion) is no longer experimental. The "--grow --size" options can have "--assume-clean" to suppress extra resync. RAID0 chunk size no longer has to be a power of 2.
Release Notes: This release is a stablizing update for 3.2. Version 3.2 provides a policy framework to allow hot-plugged devices to be immediately included in arrays and to provide fine control for migrating spares between arrays. Version 3.2 also includes OnLine Capacity Expansion and level migration for IMSM (Intel) format arrays.
Release Notes: Assorted bugs were fixed, particularly relating to management of DDF metadata. The handling of arrays in various unusual states of disrepair was improved.
Release Notes: Lots of bugs were fixed. Improvements were made for booting from Intel IMSM metadata arrays. The default metadata version was changed to 1.2.
Release Notes: "--create --auto=mdp" was made to work for non-standard device names. Restarting of a "reshape" if it was stopped in the middle was fixed. A segfault when using v1 superblock was fixed. --write-mostly was made effective when re-adding a device to an array. Various minor fixes were made.
Release Notes: Assorted minor bugs relating to RAID4, verison-1 metadata, option parsing, spare migration, and more were fixed.
