Hi All!

Linstor v0.6 is out!

First thing to note is that the client command for creating storage pools
was slightly changed, the driver is now the first positional argument e.g.
`linstor storage-pool create lvm drbdnode sp_name`

Adding a backing disk to a diskless node, while it is online, while it
is under IO, while it is primary, is a cool feature that might come handy
in various situations. E.g.

- You want have more read IOPs for a VM
- You want to reduce network-load when your VM reads form a virtual disk
- You want to increase redundancy of your data set

Of course the inverse operation (remove a disk, changing a resource to a
diskless one) while it is online and primary is available with this
release as well.

linstor-server 0.6.0
 * Feature: Convert diskless DRBD to diskful online (and reverse)
 * Feature: Add Swordfish driver support
 * Fix hanging resource-definition delete (if it was empty)
 * Fix incorrect lvm thin pool total capacity
 * Fix snapshot names from migrated resource


linstor-client/python-linstor 0.6.0
 * Add command for disk to diskless
 * Client accepts multiple controllers
 * Storage pool create command changed
 * Added swordfish driver to storage pools
