+#### 2. Changes to gluster based smb.conf share management
+
+Previously Gluster used to delete the entire volume share section from smb.conf
+either after volume is stopped or while disabling user.cifs/user.smb volume set
+options. With this release those volume share sections, that were added by
+samba hook scripts inside smb.conf, will not get removed post a volume stop or
+on disabling user.cifs/user.smb volume set options. Instead we add the following
+share specific smb.conf parameter to the end of corresponding volume share
+section to make it unavailable for client access:
+
+```
+available = no
+```
+
+This will make sure that the additional smb.conf parameters configured
+externally are retained. For more details on the above parameter search under
+"available (S)" at [smb.conf(5)](https://www.samba.org/samba/docs/current/man-html/smb.conf.5.html) manual page.
