A little later than I'd hoped, but the first Pacemaker 1.0 bugfix-only  
release is now ready.

The delay was caused by additional automated testing coverage^ that  
found issues not seen during 1.0.0 testing.
There are also more testing enhancements scheduled for the 1.0.2  
testing cycle:
- Detach/reattach test
- Resurrect and rewrite the split-brain test
- Add openais and attrd components to the ComponentFail test

^ the addition of a pingd resource to the test cluster and an improved  
Stonithd test

Packages for Pacemaker 1.0 and it's immediate dependancies can be  
downloaded from the usual location:

and the source can be obtained from:

General installation instructions are available at:

Major points of interest for this release include
- attrd/pingd now works
- XML comments allowed in configurations
- Better behavior when nodes rejoin the cluster
- Pacemaker options can now be set in openais.conf
- The addition of extra manpages (rpm-based distros only)

The next 1.0 release will be mid-December and will have additional  
improvements for master/slave resources.
Also, I'm about to start on another 0.6 maintenance release.
