Although the entry in the changelog is quite long, I think
we stabilise nicely.
-> RedHat users should consider to update, becuase with
previous releasese /etc/init.d/drbd is not called.
-> You might want to upgrade to be 100% sure to never
run into issue 1 on the list of changes, although with
sane cluster management you probabely prefer to never
run your service on the SyncTarget node anyway...
-> You might want to upgrade to get higher syncer
performance than 30 MB/sec
otherwise there is no immediate reason to upgrade.
Users of ancient 2.4.x (RH 2.4.9!) kernels will now
be able to use drbd-0.7.x
* Fix a bug that could case read requests to return wrong data
on a node in Primary/SyncTaget state. (A very unlikely race,
it is not known that this ever triggered; It was found by an
ASSERTION in the code)
* Removed the 30MB/sec speeding limit for the syncer. (this was
intended as a debugging aid, but it was not removed in time)
* A fix to drbdsetup, to make drbdadm adjust work if a resource
* Got rid of the compiler warning when build on a kernel with
CONFIG_LBD not set.
* Now the device nodes are created with sane permissions.
* The debian package is now named "drbd0.7"
* set_fs() is now also done for sendpage()
* Better compatibility with early 2.4.x kernels (BH_Launder, min()/max())
* Touch /var/lock/subsys/drbd, needed for RedHat based distros.
* Improvements to the INSALL document
* Removed HOWTO, ja, pt_BR ... all hopelessly outdated.
