EVMS 2.1.0 released

The EVMS team is announcing the next major release of the Enterprise Volume Management System. Package 2.1.0 is now available for download. This release is for the new EVMS design, which is based on user-space volume discovery and communication with existing kernel drivers, such as MD/Software-RAID and Device-Mapper.

Downloads at the project page:

http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/evms/

Please see the INSTALL file in the 2.1.0 package for information about installing and getting started with the new EVMS. Since this new design is based on user-space discovery, there will no longer be boot-time volume activation. Please see the INSTALL file for information about how to activate your volumes using the EVMS user-interfaces and utilities. The INSTALL file also contains instructions for how users may easily "upgrade" an existing 2.4 kernel with Device-Mapper and EVMS 2.0.1 patches.... read more
