Hi everyone,

In June of last year, I released Release Candidate 3 of crmsh 2.2.0,
and I honestly expected to have the final version ready no more than a
few weeks later. Well, it took around 6 months, but now it is finally

The source code can be downloaded from Github:

* https://github.com/ClusterLabs/crmsh/releases/tag/2.2.0

Packages for several popular Linux distributions can be downloaded
from the Stable repository at the OBS:

* http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/network:/ha-clustering:/Stable/

Archives of the tagged release:

* https://github.com/ClusterLabs/crmsh/archive/2.2.0.tar.gz
* https://github.com/ClusterLabs/crmsh/archive/2.2.0.zip

There are many new features and quite a few bug fixes, but I'll try to
describe some of the major changes below. For the full list of changes
since version 2.1, see the ChangeLog. I am also including the list
of changes since RC3 in the release notes below.

* https://github.com/ClusterLabs/crmsh/blob/2.2.0/ChangeLog

New features introduced in this version:

* Support for many of the new features introduced in Pacemaker
  1.1.14, including improved support for Pacemaker Remote and
  pattern-based fencing topology configurations.

* The cluster scripts have been greatly improved and are now used as
  the wizards backend for hawk. Together with the improvements in the
  cluster scripts, the crmsh template sublevel has been deprecated,
  and all of the templates are now available as cluster scripts. The
  template sublevel will be removed in a future version.

* The history explorer now replaces the combined log and event files
  from hb_report using the commands crm history log and crm history
  events. Additionally, the info summary now highlights transitions
  that contain error logs or other potentially interesting events.

* Improved verification before committing new changes, for example
  crmsh now warns if colocation constraints are applied to group

* resource start / stop / restart now take multiple resource arguments.

* Added a maintenance sublevel with commands intended to simplify the
  use of maintenance mode.

* Switched to using the python parallax library instead of pssh for
  remote node communication. Parallax is a fork of pssh with
  additional features added specifically for using it as a python
  library rather than a command line tool. Packages for
  python-parallax can be downloaded from the OBS, or it can be
  installed from PyPI.
