mdadm (3.3.2-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* use-tempnode-not-devnode.patch: change udev rules file to use $tempnode which works both on wheezy and jessie udev, instead of $devnode which only works in jessie. At this stage it is better to make rules file compatible with old version instead of adding versioned dependency. Should be removed for jessie+1. (Closes: #770883) * fix Closes: list in previous entry (Closes: #771852) # imported from the archive

+Subject: ANNOUNCE: mdadm 3.1.3 - A tool for managing Soft RAID under Linux
+I am pleased to announce the availability of
+ mdadm version 3.1.3
+It is available at the usual places:
+ countrycode=xx.
+ http://www.${countrycode}
+and via git at
+ git://
+This is a bugfix/stability release over 3.1.2
+Significant changes are:
+ - mapfile now lives in a fixed location which default to
+ /dev/.mdadm/map but can be changed at compile time. This
+ location is choses and most distros provide it during early
+ boot and preserve it through. As long a /dev exists and is
+ writable, /dev/.mdadm will be created.
+ Other files file communication with mdmon live here too.
+ This fixes a bug reported by Debian and Gentoo users where
+ udev would spin in early-boot.
+ - IMSM and DDF metadata will not be recognised on partitions
+ as they should only be used on whole-disks.
+ - Various overflows causes by 2G drives have been addressed.
+ - A subarray of an IMSM contain can now be killed with
+ --kill-subarray. Also subarrays can be renamed with
+ --update-subarray
+ - -If (or --incremental --fail) can be used from udev to
+ fail and remove from all arrays a device which has been
+ unplugged from the system. i.e. hot-unplug-support.
+ - "mdadm /dev/mdX --re-add missing" will look for any device
+ that looks like it should be a member of /dev/mdX but isn't
+ and will automatically --re-add it
+ - Now compile with -Wextra to get extra warnings.
+ - Lots of minor bug fixes, documentation improvements, etcc
+This release is believed to be stable and you should feel free to
+upgrade to 3.1.3
+It is expected that the next release will be 3.2 with a number of new
+features. 3.1.4 will only happen if important bugs show up before 3.2
+is stable.
