v0.92 released

This is the second-to-last chunk of new stuff before Hammer. Big items include additional checksums on OSD objects, proxied reads in the cache tier, image locking in RBD, optimized OSD Transaction and replication messages, and a big pile of RGW and MDS bug fixes.

UPGRADING

  • The experimental ‘keyvaluestore-dev’ OSD backend has been renamed ‘keyvaluestore’ (for simplicity) and marked as experimental. To enable this untested feature and acknowledge that you understand that it is untested and may destroy data, you need to add the following to your ceph.conf:
    enable experimental unrecoverable data corrupting features = keyvaluestore
  • The following librados C API function calls take a ‘flags’ argument whose value is now correctly interpreted:

    rados_write_op_operate() rados_aio_write_op_operate() rados_read_op_operate() rados_aio_read_op_operate()

    The flags were not correctly being translated from the librados constants to the internal values. Now they are. Any code that is passing flags to these methods should be audited to ensure that they are using the correct LIBRADOS_OP_FLAG_* constants.

  • The ‘rados’ CLI ‘copy’ and ‘cppool’ commands now use the copy-from operation, which means the latest CLI cannot run these commands against pre-firefly OSDs.
  • The librados watch/notify API now includes a watch_flush() operation to flush the async queue of notify operations. This should be called by any watch/notify user prior to rados_shutdown().
