+# Release notes for Gluster 3.8.3
+This is a bugfix release. The [Release Notes for 3.8.0](,
+[3.8.1]( and [3.8.2]( contain a listing of all the new
+features that were added and bugs fixed in the GlusterFS 3.8 stable release.
+## Out of Order release to address a severe usability regression
+Due to a major regression that was not caught and reported by any of the
+testing that has been performed, this release is done outside of the normal
+The main reason to release 3.8.3 earlier than planned is to fix [bug
+> On restarting GlusterD or rebooting a GlusterFS server, only the bricks of
+> the first volume get started. The bricks of the remaining volumes are not
+> started. This is a regression caused by a change in GlusterFS-3.8.2.
+> This regression breaks automatic start of volumes on rebooting servers, and
+> leaves the volumes inoperable. GlusterFS volumes could be left in an
+> inoperable state after upgrading to 3.8.2, as upgrading involves restarting
+> GlusterD.
+> Users can forcefully start the remaining volumes, by doing running the
+> `gluster volume start <name> force` command.
