+# Release notes for Gluster 3.8.10
+
+This is a bugfix release. The [Release Notes for 3.8.0](3.8.0.md),
+[3.8.1](3.8.1.md), [3.8.2](3.8.2.md), [3.8.3](3.8.3.md), [3.8.4](3.8.4.md),
+[3.8.5](3.8.5.md), [3.8.6](3.8.6.md), [3.8.7](3.8.7.md), [3.8.8](3.8.8.md) and
+[3.8.9](3.8.9.md) contain a listing of all the new features that were added and
+bugs fixed in the GlusterFS 3.8 stable release.
+
+
+## Improved configuration with additional 'virt' options
+
+This release includes 5 more options to group virt (for VM workloads) for
+optimal performance.
+
+Updating to the glusterfs version containing this patch won't automatically set
+these newer options on already existing volumes that have group virt
+configured. The changes take effect only when post-upgrade
+
+ # gluster volume-set <VOL> group virt
+
+is performed.
+
+For already existing volumes the users may execute the following five commands,
+if not already set:
+
+ # gluster volume set <VOL> performance.low-prio-threads 32
+ # gluster volume set <VOL> cluster.locking-scheme granular
+ # gluster volume set <VOL> features.shard on
+ # gluster volume set <VOL> cluster.shd-max-threads 8
+ # gluster volume set <VOL> cluster.shd-wait-qlength 10000
+ # gluster volume set <VOL> user.cifs off
+
+It is most likely that `features.shard` would already have been set on the
+volume even before the upgrade, in which case the third `volume set` command
+above may be skipped.
+
