As usual, you can find it here:

2.0.5 has significant bug fixes and enhancements making it a worthwhile 
upgrade for anyone running R2 CRM-style configurations, or who want to.

I just tried the 2.0.5 GUI, and it's really cool.  You can definitely 
put it through its paces with the GUI.  See http://linux-ha.org/GuiGuide
But, maybe I'm just easily amused ;-)
