Dear DRBD Reactor users,

this is drbd-reactor version 0.8.0. There have not been any changes
since RC1, the slightly adapted original announcement for you

The main change is integration of "secondary --force" in the promoter
plugin. IMO that is a very nice feature and can make the difference
between rebooting a node hat has hundreds of resources just because of
one faulty service and handling that scenario more benign, even
recovering from an isolated Primary.

There is a blog post that goes into more details here [1].

Using secondary-force is now the default with v0.8.0, no configuration
changes necessary. Old behavior can be restored by setting
"secondary-force = false" in a promoter section. This requires a kernel
module >= 9.1.7 and drbd-utils >= 9.21.2

Regards, rck

* CI: update for gitlab 15.0
* prometheus: expose force-io-failures
* doc: typo fix
* promoter: implement secondary --force
* bump min versions for secondary --force
* core: mv version checks to main
