We'ld like to inform you that devicemapper 0.29.2 has ben yanked due to a
behavior that is fixed in 0.29.3 which was released last night.
The effect of the behavior was that certain methods in the DM impl that
implemented certain ioctls would return an error result always.
This was due to an implicit requirement embedded in the source that the
result of an ioctl would contain the name of a devicemapper device.
This expectation has always been implicit in the devicemapper source; the
change in 0.29.2 was that the name was read from the ioctl result more
eagerly than in previous versions, causing the effect of this false
assumption to be more visible in the library behavior.
We urge anyone who is making use of devicemapper 0.29.2 to move up to
devicemapper 0.29.3 immediately.
Thanks for your interest in the Stratis project and its supporting
