    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
    http://linux.msede.com/lvm/

    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.
