I had to make this release in order to use it today (well yesterday now already !) on a customer site. That version was needed to support correctly software Raid on RHEL 6, with re-creation of metadata and UUIDs, which took a bit of time to make correctly. This version will also be welcome by Debian and Ubuntu users, as it fixes restoration issues, as well as on RHEL 5 (tune2fs command wasn’t working for ext4, and it required to use tune4fs, only available here !). It supports now out of tree kernel modules (such as hpsa from the PSP/SPP) and improve support for latest HP ProLiant Blades.
It fixes lots of small annoyances here and there (like #616), especially thanks to a test script that I have now developed to automate regression tests. This version was tested with it for rhel-6-x86_64, rhel-5-x86_64, debian-6.0-x86_64, ubuntu-11.04-i386, fully for the first time. I plan to extend it so that in the future I can cover more cases. And fixes also came from external contributors, which is very nice to see 🙂
So, now time to rest a bit ! After project-builder.org and this version of MondoRecue, I can take a bit of time to think to the next steps, and more over, work on some other projects such as the UUWL and some I’ll announce later.
