[gfarm-announce:43475] Gfarm version 2.1.1 released



Hi all,

We are pleased to announce the release of Gfarm file system version
2.1.1 and Gfarm2fs version 1.0.2.

		http://sourceforge.net/projects/gfarm/

Major update is to support a hardlink and on-demand replication.
This release also includes some bug fixes.

After upgrading to this version, it is necessary to restart
gfmd and gfsd (several times for safe).  It is *not* necessary
to execute config-gfarm or config-gfsd script again.
