Version 2.5.1
*(Released Fri, 11 May 2012)*
A small bugfix release.
The main issues solved are on the topic of compatibility with newer LVM
- fixed parsing of ``lv_attr`` field
- adapted to new ``vgreduce --removemissing`` behaviour where sometimes
the ``--force`` flag is needed
Also on the topic of compatibility, ``tools/lvmstrap`` has been changed
to accept kernel 3.x too (was hardcoded to 2.6.*).
A regression present in 2.5.0 that broke handling (in the gnt-* scripts)
of hook results and that also made display of other errors suboptimal
was fixed; the code behaves now like 2.4 and earlier.
Another change in 2.5, the cleanup of the OS scripts environment, is too
aggressive: it removed even the ``PATH`` variable, which requires the OS
scripts to *always* need to export it. Since this is a bit too strict,
we now export a minimal PATH, the same that we export for hooks.
The fix for issue 201 (Preserve bridge MTU in KVM ifup script) was
integrated into this release.
Finally, a few other miscellaneous changes were done (no new features,
just small improvements):
- Fix ``gnt-group --help`` display
- Fix hardcoded Xen kernel path
- Fix grow-disk handling of invalid units
- Update synopsis for ``gnt-cluster repair-disk-sizes``
- Accept both PUT and POST in noded (makes future upgrade to 2.6 easier)
