Pacemaker-mgmt-1.99.2 is now available. 

Main changes since 1.99.1:
* Support viewing/editing/importing/exporting the whole cib xml or only
the configuration section
* Improve the performance and the UI of "Transition Information"
* Provide more node details
* Optimize message generating for transferring
* UI: 
   - Add accelerators for all of the menu entries.
   - Set default responses of "Enter" key for most dialogs
* Provide version information: 
   - Add "About" for the front-end;
   - Log version details when starting mgmtd daemon
   (So when people file bugs from developerbugs.linux-foundation.org,
they can easily get and provide the hg revision.)
* Bug fixes
   - Avoid hanging when getting cib fails
   - Memory leaks
   - ...

We now have Japanese translation besides Chinese. Hideo did the good

Packages for pacemaker-mgmt 1.99.2 and its dependencies can be  
downloaded from :

(The "python-lxml" and "graphviz-python" dependencies have been removed
from rpms for RHEL and CentOS, because those distributions don't include
the two packages. Even though users will have the same experience once
they get the packages somewhere and install them.)
