Filed under
Linux

It is my pleasure to announce the release of v3.2.0 of the xfsprogs
package. This release has been a long time in the making with a lot
of effort from many people:

- just over a year since v3.1.11 was released
- 323 commits
- 17 contributors
- 10 code reviewers
- 232 files changed
- +29549/-24432 lines of code

The major feature that this release brings is support for the
version 5 on-disk format. This new format provides significant
reliability enhancements such as metadata CRCs, object back owner
references and improved crash recovery reliability.
