Website and Community Improvements

You have probably noticed we relaunched the Gluster website last month, changing the look and feel, navigation, and a substantial amount of the content. We also formally changed the name of the company to Gluster from Z Research and created a new logo (the ant didn’t disappear for good – more on that shortly).

We also merged the gluster.org site into a community section under the gluster.com domain. Our goal was to eliminate overlap, simplify navigation, simplify maintenance, and make it easier for new community features to be added over time. Several folks were not happy to see the gluster.org site go away and some speculated that was a signal Gluster was moving away from open source; so two things to note:

  1. Our commitment to open source development has not changed and will continue going forward (with GPLv3 as the foundation).
  2. The gluster.org site will be returning

In the next few weeks we will roll out a new community home page, again initially focused on navigation and making nearly all key resources one click away. Following that, new features will be rolled out over time.
