remain unchanged.
+#### 7. ctime feature is enabled by default
+
+The ctime feature which maintains (c/m) time consistency across replica and
+disperse subvolumes is enabled by default.
+
+Also, with this release, a single option is provided to enable/disable ctime
+feature,
+
+```
+#gluster vol set <volname> ctime <on/off>
+```
+
+**NOTE:** The time information used is from clients, hence it's required that
+clients are synced with respect to their times, using NTP or other such means.
+
+**Limitations:**
+- Mounting gluster volume with time attribute options (noatime, realatime...)
+ is not supported with this feature
+- This feature does not guarantee consistent time for directories if the hashed
+ sub-volume for the directory is down
+- Directory listing is not supported with this feature, and may report
+ inconsistent time information
+- Older files created before upgrade, would witness update of ctime upon
+ accessing after upgrade [BUG:1593542](https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1593542)
