This is the next DRBD-MC beta release 0.5.1. DRBD-MC is a Java GUI that 
helps to configure DRBD/Pacemaker/Corosync/Openais/Heartbeat clusters.

In this minor release many annoying bugs were fixed and some long missing
features were implemented. For example you can now remove cluster from the 
GUI without actually editing the XML config file. Finally, in this release 
stonith devices can be configured and used in the GUI as any other service.

For some advanced folks out there, id-refs for meta-attributes and 
operations are now parsed and used in the GUI and location constraints can 
use "ne" operation and not only "eq".

You can get DRBD-MC here:


You can start it with help of Java Web-Start or you can download it and 
start it with "java -jar DMC-0.5.1.jar" command.

See some new features in the screenshot:
