>There are tarballs available for the second beta test of LVM2.
>The main new addition to the release is that we have begun merging in
>the asynchronous snapshot code. This code tries to minimise the time
>taken to perform the copy on write operation. In addition it has
>identical performance at all snapshot chunk sizes, unlike LVM1 and
>EVMS whose performance degrades exponentially as the chunk size
>The default snapshot chunk size for LVM2 has now dropped to 16k, it
>may be reduced further depending on test results.
>Please not that although snapshots are available in this release they
>are currently non-persistent, ie. the snapshot will be lost if you
>deactivate it, or reboot the machine. Persistent snapshots will
no support for the 2.5 kernel again ?
