+New glusterfs_fuse VFS module
+The new vfs_glusterfs_fuse module improves performance when Samba
+accesses a glusterfs volume mounted via FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace
+as part of the Linux kernel). It achieves that by leveraging a
+mechanism to retrieve the appropriate case of filenames by querying a
+specific extended attribute in the filesystem. No extra configuration
+is required to use this module, only glusterfs_fuse needs to be set in
+the "vfs objects" parameter. Further details can be found in the
+vfs_glusterfs_fuse(8) manpage. This new vfs_glusterfs_fuse module does
+not replace the existing vfs_glusterfs module, it just provides an
+additional, alternative mechanism to access a Gluster volume.
