Fedora Update Notification

Name        : lvm2
Product     : Fedora 21
Version     : 2.02.115
Release     : 1.fc21
URL         : http://sources.redhat.com/lvm2
Summary     : Userland logical volume management tools
Description :
LVM2 includes all of the support for handling read/write operations on
physical volumes (hard disks, RAID-Systems, magneto optical, etc.,
multiple devices (MD), see mdadd(8) or even loop devices, see
losetup(8)), creating volume groups (kind of virtual disks) from one
or more physical volumes and creating one or more logical volumes
(kind of logical partitions) in volume groups.

Update Information:

Update to latest upstream lvm2 release with various fixes and enhancements. See WHATS_NEW and WHATS_NEW_DM for more information about changes.
