0.7.15 (api:77/proto:74)
 * Fixed a bug in the GC code that could cause a resync attempt
   in the wrong direction.
 * Made DRBD's compat_ioctls work with kernels higher than 2.6.14. This
   means DRBD builds on AMD64/x86_64 with 2.6.15 and higher again.
 * drbdadm no longer looks in the current directory for its
   backend programs (=drbdsetup), but instead looks in the directory
   of the drbdadm executable and in $PATH.
 * Removed the examples from manpage, added a pointer to the HA-wiki.

The first bugfix might sound very critical, but it only affects the 
situation immediately after the initial sync (that one that is started
with the --do-what-I-say option). In case DRBD gets restarted once 
the bug no longer gets triggered.

I do not see an urgent need to update your 0.7.14 installations, but
you should use 0.7.15 with new installations of course.
