I am happy to announce the 3.1.8 release of gfs2-utils. This release 
includes the following visible changes:

   * Performance improvements in fsck.gfs2, mkfs.gfs2 and gfs2_edit 
   * Better checking of journals, the jindex, system inodes and inode 
'goal' values in fsck.gfs2
   * gfs2_jadd and gfs2_grow are now separate programs instead of 
symlinks to mkfs.gfs2.
   * Improved test suite and related documentation.
   * No longer clobbers the configure script's --sbindir option.
   * No longer depends on perl.
   * Various minor bug fixes and enhancements.

See below for a complete list of changes. The source tarball is 
available from:

Please test, and report bugs against the gfs2-utils component of Fedora
