This time we have nealy no fixes to the generic code. The first item
is a optimization (which was one of the goals of drbd-0.7), but most
of the fixes are either for Linux-2.4.x or for other architectures.
It feels like we will have a final release really soon. 

* Reenabled zero copy IO for protocols B and C. (Zero copy IO is not
  used with protocol A)
* Implemented the unpopular user dialog in the boot process.
* Some fixes for Linux-2.4.x compatibility.
* drbd.conf man page updated
* Bugfixes for 64bit architectures
* Ensured protocol compatibility between hosts of different word sizes
  (Tested with i386 and alpha)
* Support for meta-data on block devices with hardsect size != 512 Byte
  (e.g. dasd on s390x)
* New debian subdir

You can download it from LINBIT's download area as .tar.gz or
fetch it from CVS as tag "rel-0_7-pre9".

Please test it in your pre- production environments, in all your
test clusters you have...
