Release Notes: A CRC-block and file descriptor cache was added in chunkserver. Compilation warnings on 64-bit machines were removed. The chunkserver choice in mfsmount was optimized. A better replication algorithm is used. Several bugs were fixed, mainly in the new code introduced after 1.5.9.
Release Notes: An improved rebalancing algorithm. Protections against overriding metadata.mfs.back by older metadata.mfs. Fixes to build mfstools, mfsmaster, and mfsmetarestore with Large File Support on Linux (previously only mfsmount had LFS enabled). Less verbose logging in mfsmaster. This release logs chunkserver disconnections in mfsmaster.
Release Notes: Better memory allocation in the Master's chunks module. Syslog messages used only for debugging purposes were commented out. There is a fix for a stack buffer overrun (by 4 bytes) in mfsmount.
