By the beginning of June I realized that there was no DRBD release in the 
last 4 month, people could get the impression that the development stalled.
This is not the case! There were just no bugs in 0.7.10 that triggered the
release of 0.7.11 . So here is a "time triggered" release:

0.7.11 (api:77/proto:74)
 * The upper limit of the runtime tuning parameter max_buffers
   was ways too low for today's IBM storage controllers.
   Was 32 - 10000 ; Now it is 32 - 131072 ( Now one could
   allow DRBD to allocate up to half a gigabyte of memory as
   receive buffers)
 * A fix to the Makefiles to make building of RPMs work on RAHS4.
 * A workaround to have DBRD running on PPC64 with Linux-2.4.x kernels,
   on Linux-2.6.x everything was fine already.
 * Removal of dead code (busy_blocks).
 * LINBIT drbd rpms now conflict with km_drbd
   (SuSE's kernel module source hook)
 * possibly existing /lib/modules/*/extra/drbd.ko are renamed to .orig in the
   post-install scripts to avoid conflicts with existing modules from
   distribution kernel packages
 * fixed flex input buffer overflow
   drbdadm_scanner.fl produced tokens of arbitrary length due to excessive use
   of "+" and "*" modifiers. Now these are replaced with "{x,y}" modifiers, so
   it should no longer segfault, which was actually observed e.g. with long
   continuous comment blocks (~5k).

No need to upgrade for you in case you are happy with 0.7.10.
For new systems please use "seven-eleven".


BTW, It was tagged and packaged by Lars on the 8th of June.
