Subject*** ANNOUNCEMENT *** LVM 0.8.1 and LVM 0.9 available at

Due to technical problems this might not have made it through...
Sorry in advance if you get it twice.

Hi all,

and 0.9 are available for download at

Please see further information below, test it and help us
to make an even better LVM for Linux :-)

Heinz -- The LVM guy --

The Logical Volume Manager (LVM) is a subsystem for online disk storage
management which has become a de-facto standard for storage management
under Linux.

New features:
- Enhance pvmove(8) to operate on single physical volumes
- Added support for multiple ext2 resize commands via e2fsadm(8)
- Changed device specials to belong to group "disk"
to accomodate backup software

Bug Fixes:
- LV on disk metadata offset faults
- Housekeeping for the metadata backup history file
- lvdisplay(8) and pvdisplay(8) option -c and -v handling

LVM 0.9:
Supported on:
- Linux 2.4.0-test10 (and previous 2.4.0 test kernels)

New Features:

on snapshots (VFS patch necessary)

variable LVM_VG_NAME
