Schedule? What's that? ;-)
Right now I feel pretty good about where we are - as far as features and
stability are concerned. A number of people are running these betas in
Even FreeBSD et al are reaching a reasonable degree of functionality.
This would mean that perhaps one of the next betas could be a stable release
candidate. As always, this depends on what other things happen during this
Here are features that would be nice to have by the 0.5 stable release:
Maturity in ipfail
Getting hb_standby to work on machines with nice_failback off
The first one is well underway. Someone mentioned the second one earlier,
but I don't know if she's started it.
I would suspect that we'll try and get 0.5 out in the next few months.
