Dev log for upcoming 3.8-13

Installing transmission ROCKON doesn’t work, the gear icon just keeps rolling. Tried wit hremoving subvolumes while ROCKON stopped, but still no go.

New update: 3.8-12.03

Thanks for testing and reporting issues very clearly @Flyer @KarstenV and @phillxnet. The dashboard issue is fixed in this update.

This update is minor but important. Please update and make sure dashboard is working. On a related note, I am unable to reproduce the snapshot problem yet. Let me know if it still exists after the update.

Transmission installed after update. +++

3.8-12.04 now available!

I’ve fixed a couple issues, 1) fixed the snapshot bug that @Flyer reported with extensive detail. Thanks!. I think the root cause is that a btrfs warning is being displayed to stderr, but it used to go to stdout prior to progs v4.4.1. I’ve made the code around it more robust as well. 2) Secondly, made a minor rock-ons improvement.

@phillxnet added a pretty cool feature where you can add custom S.M.A.R.T parameters. I know some of you discussed the matter in detail in other posts. Please give it a try and report back your findings. Many thanks Phil!

@suman check this

I think we can avoid all those checks till btrfs-progs group don’t solve 4K chunk issue (you’ll always get a rescan request cos’ probably in any storage you’ll always find at least one file greater than 4K)


I’m sad to report that, on my system, the error with Samba and Rock-ons being stopped and not restarted during an update seems to have returned.

During the last 2 updates I have had to enable them manually after the update.

Happy saturday folks! 3.8-12.05 is now available.

This is a special one, we have a new contributor!!! Thanks @Flyer for your pull requests.

We closed 2 issues in this update. The first improved upon task scheduler by adding more frequency options to choose from. The second is a stability improvement in the scheduled snapshot logic. While we are at it, a couple of minor bugs were also fixed. Enjoy!

@suman Thanks for letting mentioned - Think i’ll go on helping for a long time, Rockstor rocks

3.8-12.06 is now available!

We fixed two issues. First is a UI/pagination issue preventing samba exports > 15 to be shown. Second is an enhancement to the pool mounting logic that helps with many things, particularly with rockstor-bootstrap. @phillxnet, there was a bug in pool mounting logic earlier that got triggered by your fake serial id changes. If you can, please test the latest against fake serial id scenario. Thanks!

@suman Tested on a few different systems / configs here and fake serial seems to be functioning as expected.

I made a couple of Rock-on related improvements in this update. Thanks to @pdenhaan for reporting this issue. I’ve also cleared some backlog with Rock-on submissions from @joshi, @bug11 @henfri and @pdenhaan. Great to see these submissions. Please keep them coming! and thank you!

Hello everybody,

is there any overview regarding new features and improvements for the next version 3.8-13?
Any possible release date which can be shared already? :slight_smile:

Sorry for asking, but I was not able to find any related information in the forum so far.

Thanks / regards,

If you want to get an idea follow on github to see what’s going on :wink:

Hi @glenngould, I’d love to bring more predictability with the timing and scope of releases and we are steadily becoming capable of doing so, thanks to support from our subscribers and customers. It will take some more time and $ to reach that point.

Historically speaking, we released a stable update roughly every 4-6 weeks. This release cycle is the slowest till date, but I am planning to close it out within a week. It may be a lighter update in terms of number of issues closed, but there’s enough good/important stuff that doesn’t justify waiting much longer.

That’s the best non-answer answer I can provide :slight_smile: Please stay tuned and thanks for your question!
