2009

10/2009LIO (v3.1-pre for Linux v2.6.31-rc5): Complete SCSI-3/SCSI-4 functionality for Persistent Reservations including APTPL=1, SPEC_I_PT=1 and PROUT SA REGISTER_AND_MOVE have been commited into lio-core-2.6.git running v2.6.31-rc5 on 32-bit x86 HVM and ppc64 architectures.
10/2009LIO (cv3.1-pre for Linux v2.6.31-rc5): Complete SCSI-3/SCSI-4 functionality for implict and explict ALUA including all primary and secondary access states. The current development version is v3.1.0 and and available from lio-core-2.6.git. Also, v3.1.0 has been backported to lio-core-2.6.30.git and lio-core-2.6.29.git. HEAD and the lio-3.0 stable branch are available in branch origin/lio-3.0 from the the backport tree.
08/2009LIO (v3.0 for Linux v2.6.30): Available in lio-core-2.6.30.git and lio-core-2.6.29.git and lio-utils code. For the v2.6.30 kernel released in mid June 2009, lio-utils v3.0 source has been released including a new python CLI for Target and iSCSI. The LIO modules located in drivers/target and drivers/lio-core are also available from lio-core-2.6.29.git for the kernel pieces, however at some point the v2.9 LINUX_VERSION wrappers can be added for running on pre v2.6.29 kernels. Also the lio-utils HOWTO v3.0 is now online.
08/2009LIO (v3.0): Development has been underway since early 9/2008 to enable a generic target engine running configFS on LIO. ConfigFS is now the preferred control method for all future upstream kernel work. Code from drivers/lio-core/iscsi_target_ioctl.c is being disabled and will eventually be removed when the conversion is complete. For now, the SCSI and iSCSI MIBs for SNMP will remain under procfs in /proc/scsi_target/mib/ and /proc/iscsi_target/mib/ using seq_file() respectively. These two different MIBs, SCSI and iSCSI are owned by Target and iSCSI respectively. Currently, the SCSI MIBs is only a partial implementation, but the goal will be to complete SCSI MIBs as other fabric modules are ports to use Target/configFS.
04/2009LIO (v3.0 for Linux v2.6.29): SPC-3 compliant Persistent Reservations are up and running against multiple SCSI subsystems using independent developed RFC 3720 compatible iSCSI Initiator implementations. This also includes target mode infrastructure support for implict Asymmetric Logical Unit Assignment (ALUA) Logical Units and TPGs in /sys/kernel/config/target/core/alua/[lu_gps,tg_pt_gps] against distribution supported Linux/SCSI scsi_dh_alua. Please see Persistent Reservations for SPC-3 specific details for Linux/iSCSI Initiator client support using LIO v3.0.
01/2009LIO (v3.0 for Linux v2.6.28): Both Target and iSCSI are up and running, see Target/configFS and iSCSI/configFS for more information.

2008

10/2008LIO (v3.0 for Linux v2.6.27): All main functionality is up using ConfigFS symbolic links between Target storage objects and iSCSI Portal Group port LUNs.
06/2008LIO (v2.9-STABLE for VHACS): LIO is one of the projects that make up the VHACS and VHACS-VM cloud. It is used in DRBD target cluster resource allocation within the VHACS environment.
05/2008LIO (v2.9-STABLE for LIO-VM): LIO can also export storage from a Linux guest on hypervisor running both Linux and non-Linux hosts. There are Beta PV-OPS builds available for Ubuntu, and stable builds for Debian Etch.
05/20/08LIO (v3.0.0): Uploaded into the git repository. (announcement)
