The Lustre client version (at about 2.4.55 or so) isn't going to change until it gets out of the staging tree. When that happens isn't directly in our control.

Cheers, Andreas

Cool, thanks for the answer!

So as far as I understand things that means that the linux staging client is still more or less at lustre 2.5.x levels right?

On the Lustre front is ongoing code cleanup needed to get out of staging.

One major caveat is that we are forced to change the /proc interface is so anyone using the upstream kernel will need to use the user tools with at least patch http://review.whamcloud.com/14675 (until it is fixed and landed).

Cheers, Andreas

There are several articles on the size of the kernel 4.2 update and it bringing lots of new/improved features.
I didn't see any mention of lustre features I assume because they interest the article writers less so I'd like to ask here: what if anything does kernel 4.2 bring us?
