+## Note
+Any new volumes created with the release will have the `fips-mode-rchecksum` volume option set to `on` by default.
+If a client older than glusterfs-4.x (i.e. 3.x clients) accesses a volume which has the `fips-mode-rchecksum` volume option enabled, it can cause erroneous checksum computation/ unwanted behaviour during afr self-heal. This option is to be enabled only when all clients are also >=4.x. So if you are using these older clients, please explicitly turn this option `off`.
