- Previously, the "errno" value was not set correctly during an API failure. Consequently, applications using API could behave unpredictably. With this update, the value is set properly during API failures and the applications work as expected.
- Previously, the glusterfs-api library handled all signals that were sent to applications using glusterfs-api. As a consequence, glusterfs-api interpreted incorrectly all the the signals that were not used by this library. With this update, glusterfs-api no longer handles the signals that it does not use so that such signals are now interpreted properly.
- Previously, the glfs_fini() function did not return NULL, even if the libgfapi library successfully cleaned up all resources. Consequently, an attempt to use the "qemu-img create" command, which used libgfapi, failed. The underlying source code has been modified so that the function returns NULL when the libgfapi cleanup is successful, and the command now works as expected.
- Native Support for GlusterFS in QEMU has been included to glusterfs packages. This support allows native access to GlusterFS volumes using the libgfapi library instead of through a locally mounted FUSE file system. This native approach offers considerable performance improvements.
