    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.


    - 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

    Please note that LVM 0.6 is still considered alpha.
