Hi DRBD users,

This release contains several bug fixes and some new features. If you
don't use these features, there is no urgent need to upgrade now.

Highlights include:
- drbd-utils now handle "resync-after" properly. This needed fixing in
  the 8.4 part and the 9 part of drbd-utils.

- drbd.ocf now has a new parameter named "connect_only_after_promote"
  which might be helpful in stacked setups. drbd.ocf also learned to to
  specify a required kernel version. If you are interested, please read
  the according changes in the git log for more details.

- drbdmon now displays rsync progress (assuming a new enough DRBD9
  kernel module).

- Utils learned to specify a required kernel module version in the res
  files. This is a DRBD9 only feature. This helps with error messages
  people get when they wrongfully load a DRBD8.4 module and use LINSTOR.
  It might also be handy in other situations when one wants to make
  absolutely sure that a specific/specific range of the kernel module is

- Last but not least, the bits for WinDRBD (not to be confused with
  wdrbd) got merged. This allows building drbd-utils on Windows, if you
  use the Windows version of DRBD, which is based on the DRBD9 code used
  in Linux. No, it is not 1. of April :-).

As usual, I hope this release does not destroy your kitten factory.

 * drbdadm,v9,v84: fix resync-after
 * drbd.ocf: connect_only_after_promote, require kernel version
 * drbdmon: display resync progress
 * parser,v9: require-drbd-module-version
 * windrbd: add WinDRBD support
