Hello DRBD9 and drbdmanage testers, we have released version 0.34 of drbdmanage today. Improvements in this release include: - New command line parser with tab-completion and line editing capability in interactive mode - New powerful list views that allow drbdmanage to hide distracting information unless it is explicitly requested, and to enablegrouping of list entries - New storage drivers (experimental) The new drivers have a better ability to check whether the storage backend has created or removed a volume as requested by drbdmanage. The new drivers are: * LVM logical volume driver: (Standard logical volumes, no snapshot capability) drbdmanage.storage.lvm_ng.LvmNg * LVM multiple thin pools driver: (One thin pool per new volume and the volume's snapshot/restore volumes) drbdmanage.storage.lvm_thinpool_ng.LvmThinPoolNg * LVM single thin pool driver: (A single shared thin pool for all volumes and snapshots) drbdmanage.storage.lvm_thinlv.LvmThinLv Older implementations of the LVM LV driver and the LVM multi thin pool driver are still included, however, we recommend that you switch to the new drivers, as the old drivers are considered deprecated. Note that the new drivers will be renamed in future versions. Configuration file templates for the new drivers are included in the release packages. - Fully qualified domain names (FQDN) can be used as a drbdmanage node name now (the dot character is now allowed inside a node name) - A new connection algorithm connects DRBD9 clients only to server nodes (nodes where a resource has a storage backend), but not to other clients, thereby reducing the number of active network connections - Packaging support for the Debian distribution has been added You can find the archives at: http://oss.linbit.com/drbdmanage/ There is also a GIT repository available at: http://git.drbd.org/gitweb.cgi?p=drbdmanage.git This is a release that comes with quite a few changes, so if you have any questions on how to use this new version of drbdmanage or any of its new components, feel free to post to the mailing list or to visit our IRC channel at FreeNode #drbd9+drbdmanage.
