Since 8.4 is in freeze mode, developers start to tink about drbd-9.
This thinking process causes a bit of backscatter to 8.4, but since
8.4 is not yet released, and if this backscatter will make life
easier in the future it is a good thing.

  So, the most prominent changes, are to make the future transition
  from drbd-8.4 to drbd-9 a smooth experience.

Please note: This is a release candidate, not intended for production.
Please help with testing!

8.4.0rc3 (api:genl1/proto:86-100)
 * Renamed drbdsetup commands: new-connection -> new-resource,
   del-connection -> del-resource and xml -> xml-help
 * Renamed a configure option: --with-legacy-connector -> --with-legacy_utils
 * Renamed drbdadm options --force to --yes
 * drbdadm now passes drbdsetup options through, without the cumbersome
   "--" separator. They need to be given after the command on the command
   line. I.e. "drbdadm primary r0 --force". This is enabled for: attach, 
   disk-options, new-options, disconnect, resource-options, primary and 
 * Changes from the 8.3 branch up to 8.3.11rc3
 * Code cleanups ; Removal of compatibility code for kernels older than 2.6.18
