Announcing heartbeat 0.4.9a (beta release)
Thu, 17 Jan 2002 23:45:55 -0700
We've put out the first heartbeat beta in the 0.5 series - 0.4.9a.
This release involves a complete restructuring to use automake/autoconf and
a new plugin loading system (consequently, it should run on many Linux-like
systems), and a new feature ("standby") from lclaudio which allows one to
force a failover gracefully. This release marks the beginning of the move to
restructure the project to become part of the open cluster framework.
Lots of other good features, etc. and a good building block for the future.
You'll find it in the usual place:
Please check it out and give it a whirl! We ran 500 iterations of the
stress test suite (normal for a beta), but it needs more live human type
It doesn't have Matt Soffen's change to IPaddr for Solaris and FreeBSD.
But, there'll be more betas soon if that's your interest ;-)
