On behalf of the SPDK community I’m pleased to announce the release of SPDK 21.01.1 LTS.

SPDK 21.01.1 LTS

dpdk

Added rte_ethdev and rte_net dependencies for all builds with DPDK.

Fixed compatibility issues with DPDK 19.11.

iscsi

A security vulnerability has been identified and fixed in the SPDK iSCSI target. A TEXT PDU with no data, but CONTINUE flag set, would result in a NULL pointer dereference and crash the SPDK iSCSI target process. All users of the SPDK iSCSI target are recommended to update. All SPDK versions <= v21.01 are affected.

nbd

Fixed kernel hang when bdev is removed by always setting NBD_SET_TIMEOUT.

nvme

Fixed segfault when removing qpair when transport connection fails (issue #1777).

ocssd

Fixed the bug that no media event is pushed to the target bdev.

sock

Added enable_quickack and enable_placement_id when saving JSON configuration.

Thanks to everyone for your contributions, participation, and effort!
