Although drbd-8.0preX comes along nicely, we also maintain drbd-0.7...

0.7.18 (api:78/proto:74)
 * Under high memory pressure it was possible to hit a deadlock 
   on a kmalloc(). Changed the GFP mask, it is no longer possible to
   deadlock it with memory pressure.
 * With very unlucky network timing during connect DRBD falls into 
   a connect / drop-connection loop, that as soon as DRBD is in this 
   loop is very stable. This is fixed now, DRBD detects this situation
   an breaks out of it.
 * Fix to the init-script. Now it waits until udev has created
   the device nodes of _all_ resources.
 * A small fix for the 32bit userland 64bit kernel people, running
   older kernels.
 * Improved handling of IO errors during initial read in of the
   activity log.

Nothing ground shaking but gets the latest bug fixes out of SVN
into an official release.
