[Only slightly offtopic.  Zumastor implements one of the
schemes proposed at
to reduce the overhead of maintaining multiple snapshots.]

Zumastor 0.6 is now available from http://zumastor.org

This release adds support for offline resizing
and fixes a bug that could cause data loss.
(For developers, it also adds a way to run our
autobuilder tests before committing changes.)

The full list of fixed issues is available at our issue tracker via the ugly url

For those just tuning in, Zumastor is free software that
adds enterprise storage features (primarily improved
snapshots and remote replication) to Linux.

Zumastor's snapshots share space more effectively than
LVM snapshots, and it makes snapshots easily accessible
by users (e.g. via Samba's "Previous Versions" feature).

Zumastor's replication doesn't have to compute and send checksums
for each file, so it's much more efficent than rsync.

Please test Zumastor and give us your feedback so we can
improve it for the next release.
