I've just completed tests on Heartbeat version 1.2.1 (stable series). It
has a few bug fixes and a couple of new features in it, and can be found in
the usual place:
This version mostly consists of features and bug fixes back-ported from 1.3.0.
Main changes from 1.2.0 are:
Automatic reboot on resource stop failure
Stonith devices monitored for working status
New hb_takeover command
New tests cases
Several bug fixes
Here is the ChangeLog:
