EVMS 2.5.5 Released

The EVMS team is announcing the 2.5.5 release of the Enterprise Volume Management System. This is the fifth maintenance release in the EVMS 2.5.x series, and is primarily intended to fix some recent bug-reports, as well as to update to the most recent kernel and Device-Mapper releases. In addition, three new plugin have been added in this release.

EVMS 2.5.5 is supported on recent 2.6 and 2.4.22 through 2.4.32 kernels.

Please see the INSTALL and README files in the 2.5.5 package for installation instructions and other notes. I mean it. Really. There are important notes about the new features that you need to read if you're going to use them.
