Maintenance Releases

Whamcloud invests a huge amount of time and resources into ensuring that every release is high quality. However, Whamcloud recognizes that many Lustre users would rather run a release that is well-proven in production even if it means foregoing some of the newer features. To meet the needs of these customers, Whamcloud designates a certain release to be its maintenance release stream and produces regular bugfix only updates for this release stream. These releases are what the majority of Whamcloud's customers choose to run in production. 

Feature ReleaseReleases

Whamcloud is continually developing new features required by future versions of Lustre. Users who want to use these capabilities can access them first in feature releases. Feature releases will also contain all the latest bugfixes from previous releases. Periodically a new feature release will be designated the new maintenance release stream.
