I've just completed cursory tests on Heartbeat version 1.99.0 (alpha series
leading to version 2.0). It continues to have the old capabilities like
1.x versions, but also has the (very new and very green) 2.0 capabilities
for larger clusters and resource monitoring. You can find it in the usual
Our short (and incomplete) change log is below:
* Mon Oct 11 2004 Alan Robertson <alanr at unix.sh> (see doc/AUTHORS file)
+ Version 1.99.0 - *early* beta series - preparing for 2.0.0
+ All STABLE changes noted below have been ported to this branch
+ Included in this release is a beta of the next generation of Heartbeat
resource manager developed by Andrew Beekhof.
http://linuxha.trick.ca/NewHeartbeatDesign is a good place to learn
more about this effort. Please examine crm/README, crm/test/README
and crm/crm-1.0.dtd for example usage and configuration.
+ Also included is the L(ocal) R(esource) M(anager) developed by IBM
China which is an integral part of the NewHeartbeatDesign.
+ Known caveats:
- STONITH as a whole has seen a code cleanup and should be tested
- The external STONITH plug-in has undergone major surgery and
probably doesn't work yet.
- the new CRM is not perfectly stable with 3 nodes yet.
- The new CRM doesn't have node fencing (STONITH) yet.
+ PLEASE see
and use it to report quirks and issues you find!
We expect to put out about one version every two weeks for a while.
