We are pleased to announce the general availability of kronosnet v1.17

kronosnet (or knet for short) is the new underlying network protocol for 
Linux HA components (corosync), that features the ability to use 
multiple links between nodes, active/active and active/passive link 
failover policies, automatic link recovery, FIPS compliant encryption 
(nss and/or openssl), automatic PMTUd and in general better performance 
compared to the old network protocol.

Highlights in this release:

* Add ability to change crypto configuration at runtime without
   restarting knet and without packet drop
* Add compatibility support for openssl 3.0
* Add functional testing framework and new test cases
* Minor build fixes

NOTE TO PACKAGERS: please be aware that the functional test suite adds a 
considerable amount of time to run via make check or make 
check-memcheck. This is expected, and it will increase further more as 
more tests will be added.

Known issues in this release:

* None
