SubjectAnnouncement: LVM 0.6 available.
Hello all.

Since Heinz is currently enjoying his trip to California
i would like to annonce the new LVM version 0.6.

Changes:

- Support for Linux 2.2.2

- The fixed limit of 8 volume groups with up to 31 logical
volumes each is gone: You can have 1 volume group with up
to 256 logical volumes or 99 volume groups with 2 or 3
logical volumes each or any combination in between.
See vgchange(8).

- Sizes can be specified with units now; for example you are
able to provide the logical volume size in megabytes, gigabytes
and terabytes 8*)

- Read ahead sectors now can be chooseen on a per logical
volume base with lvcreate(8)/lvchange(8);
no global setting with lvmchange(8) any longer

- new options s and n for pvscan(8)

- /proc/partitions fully supported with kernel 2.2.1 now


Additional information on Linux LVM is available at

LVM 0.6 is available for download at
ftp://linux.msede.com/lvm/v0.6/

Please note that LVM 0.6 is still considered alpha.
