Subject: ANNOUNCE: mdadm 3.2.2 - A tool for managing Soft RAID under Linux
I am pleased to announce the availability of
mdadm version 3.2.2
It is available at the usual places:
and via git at
This release is largely a stablising release for the 3.2 series.
Many of the changes just fix bugs introduces in 3.2 or 3.2.1.
There are some new features. They are:
- reshaping IMSM (Intel metadata) arrays is no longer 'experimental',
it should work properly and be largely compatible with IMSM drivers in
- --assume-clean can be used with --grow --size to avoid resyncing the
new part of the array. This is only support with very new kernels.
- RAID0 arrays can have chunksize which is not a power of 2. This has been
supported in the kernel for a while but is only now supprted by
- A new tool 'raid6check' is available which can check a RAID6 array,
or part of it, and report which device is most inconsistent with the
others if any stripe is inconsistent. This is still under development
and does not have a man page yet. If anyone tries it out and has any
questions or experience to report, they would be most welcome on
Future releases in the 3.2 series will only be made if bugfixes are needed.
The next release to add features is expected to be 3.3.
