Announcing 3.8.16

I am happy to announce Rockstor 3.8.16. It has been an exciting release cycle in which 6 contributors have come together to close 35 issues in the last 5 weeks. The theme of this release is Maintenance! It’s worth noting that there are many overall stability and reliability improvements in this release, from Django upgrade to the tiniest of UI fixes and everything in between. A large set of issues reported in our forum and github were resolved. We’ve really suited Rockstor up for a year-end holiday party and are deeply grateful for the engagement and contributions of our great community!

For new installs, We created a brand new 3.8.16 ISO which is a rebase of a newer CentOS release. Please purchase a subscription for Stable updates subscription after install and enjoy these benefits. Stable update subscribers can update from the UI as usual. Please refer to the e-mail we sent out to all subscribers with some additional information that may be necessary.
