0.7.8 (api:77/proto:74)
 * Fixed a bug that caused the syncer to starve on devices 
   bigger than 2 TB on 32bit systems (=CONFIG_LBA).
 * Made online resizing actually work. Now it makes a lot
   more sense to put DRBD on top of LVM.
 * Made the user dialog to work on RedHat based distributions.
 * A small optimization that improves the performance of the 
   syncer when woking with IBM's ServRaid Controllers (ips).
   May have a positive effect with other Controllers as well.
 * Made epoch_size atomic. This removes a SMP race condition that
   could lead on some Xeon CPUs to an ASSERT printk, but did no other
   harm than printing messages to the syslog
 * Fixed write_gc.pl to work with the perl version delivered
   with RHAS3.
 * Made the initscript to abort if one of the setup commands fails.

I will send the usual announcement to the announcements list, when
it is done...
