Maintenance Releases

Whamcloud invests a huge amount of time and resources into ensuring that every release is of high quality. However, Whamcloud recognizes that many Lustre users would rather run a release that is well-proven in production, and will be supported over a longer time, 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 Releases and Roadmap

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.

For the current plans for both maintenance and feature releases, please see the Lustre Roadmap

Lustre Downloads

The latest maintenance release and the latest feature release of Lustre are both available from the Whamcloud download page.

You can find out more detailed information of these releases in the Lustre 2.1 Change Log and Lustre 2.2 Change Log , respectively.

The complete set of releases - including the popular 1.8.x release stream - are also available

For details of development in progress within the Lustre community see the Community Development wiki
