A new release of SCST, the out-of-tree, alternative SCSI subsystem for the Linux kernel, is now out with its version 3.2 update.

SCST is backed by the likes of Western Digital / Sandisk and others into high-end SAN devices. Developer Vladislav Bolkhovitin wrote in announcing SCST 3.2, "SCST is alternative SCSI target stack for Linux. SCST allows creation of sophisticated storage devices, which can provide advanced functionality, like replication, thin provisioning, deduplication, high availability, automatic backup, etc. Many of modern SAN appliances, especially higher end ones, are SCST based. It might well be that your favorite storage appliance running SCST in the firmware."

There is the release announcement that is unfortunately light on details about SCST 3.2 changes. The SCST project site also unfortunately doesn't cover SCST 3.2 release details well, but there is the SVN change-log for those interested.
