Long-overdue beta version 0.4.8f of heartbeat is now on the web site. Give
it a shot and let me know how it works for you. The Changelog from 0.4.7 is
below. As you can see, a lot of things were changed since then.

+ Added STONITH option to heartbeat (stonith & stonith_node)
+ Added STONITH support for WTI RPS10 and Night/Ware RPC100S

0.75 of deadtime (warntime option)

be useful when implementing quorum on 2-node systems.

There are probably more, related to input ;-)
+ More SuSE-compatibility changes thanks to Marius Tomaschewski

+ Accept multiple arguments for resource scripts
+ Added Raid1 and Filesystem resource scripts
+ Split into 3 rpms - heartbeat, heartbeat-stonith heartbeat-ldirectord
+ Added -M (don't manage resources) flag to allow "observer" nodes
(doesn't work with nice_failback on other 2 nodes)
+ Fixed a bug which kept you from logging to both syslog and files
+ Fixed a bug where shutdown stopped giving out heartbeats before the
resources were taken over.
+ Added a group for heartbeat API clients and changed modes of things
+ Moved several files, etc. from /var/run to /var/lib/heartbeat
