  • gfs_fsck's ability to fix damaged resource groups has been improved.
  • A human readable option has been added to to gfs_tool df.
  • Fixed an issue which could potentially cause gfs_fsck to remove everything in a corrupt filesystem.
  • gfs_grow performance has been improved on 1k block size filesystems.
  • Fix a segfault in gfs_fsck when fixing a 'EA leaf block type' problem.
  • The gfs service is no longer disabled after an upgrade.
All users of gfs-utils should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
