Announcing: Heartbeat beta version 1.1.1

Hi,

Last night I completed tests on the new beta version of heartbeat: 1.1.1 I did the usual 500 on nice_failback, and 500 with !nice_failback.

You can find it in the usual place at:

http://linux-ha.org/download/

Most notable new feature:

+ Added a new feature to hb_standby which allows you to give up any specific category of resources: local, foreign, or all. The old behavior is "all" which is the default. This allows you to put a nice_failback cluster into an active/active configuration

Below is the changelog.

+ Significant restructuring of the processes in heartbeat
+ Added a new feature to hb_standby which allows you to give up any specific category of resources: local, foreign, or all. The old behavior is "all" which is the default. This allows you to put a nice_failback cluster into an active/active configuration
+ Enhancements to the ServeRAID code to make it work with the new (supported) version of IPSSEND from the ServeRAID folks...
+ Added STONITH code for the Dell remote access controller
+ Fixed a major bug which kept it from taking over correctly after 246 days or so
+ Fixed a major bug where heartbeat didn't lock itself into memory properly
+ Added new ping node timeout directive "deadping"
+ Made sure heartbeat preallocated stack and heap, and printed a message if we allocate heap once we're started up...
+ Minor heartbeat API bug fixes
+ Minor documentation fixes
+ Minor fix to allow IP addresses with /32 masks...
+ Fixed a timing window for !nice_failback resource acquisition
+ Added several CCM bug fixes
+ Made the APC smart UPS ups code compatible with more UPSes
+ Fixed a bug in respawn
+ Enhanced internal checking for malloc errors...
+ Added IP alias search optimization from Sean Reifscheneider
