Hi,

Once again we hope that this release will be the latest and greatest for
more than one week. The fixes for DRBD on LVM/MD made this release
necessary.

0.7.2 (api:75/proto:74)
-----
  *) Propper handling of backing storage devices that occasionally fail 
     READA (=read ahead) requests. (E.g. LVM and MD)
  *) DRBD now fails READA requests itself, if a resynchronisation is running
     and it would need to fetch the block from its peer.
  *) "drbdadm adjust" had a race, which caused random errors. ( Missing
     waitpid() ). Fixed now.
  *) Popper substract SyncPause times from the syncer performance numbers.
  *) Fix to the syncer progress bar in /proc/drbd.
  *) Fix to debian build rules.

In case everything works for you with a 0.7.0 or 0.7.1 installation 
you might consider to stay with that release. Although that race condition
in drbdadm is a stong argument to upgrade even for those, who do not
use LVM or MD.


In case you are upgarding from an 0.7.0 to this release please read
http://svn.drbd.org/drbd/tags/drbd-0.7.1/upgrade_0.7.0_to_0.7.1.txt
for more details.

If you are upgrading from an 0.6.x release please have a look at
