xfsprogs v3.2.3 has just been released. This is mainly a bugfix
release (see below for a summary). There is a notable change in
defaults for mkfs.xfs - it will now make CRC enabled filesystems by
default, and you will need to use "mkfs.xfs -m crc=0" to make
filesystems compatible with production kernels older than 3.15.

The source code can be accessed via git using either of these URLs:


and the release is tagged with the "v3.2.3" tag to make it easy to
check out the exact source used for the release.

A signed gzipped-tar archive of the source code is available


The archive is signed with my gpg key (the same one that this
release announcement is signed with).

Problems, issues, questions and general discussion about the release
