We are pleased to announce the general availability of kronosnet v1.8

kronosnet (or knet for short) is the new underlying network protocol for 
Linux HA components (corosync), that features 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 performances compared to 
the old network protocol.

Highlights in this release:

* Fixed SCTP transport on FreeBSD.
* Fixed a potential use-after-free that could lead to a crash when
   unconfiguring links at runtime.
* Fixed a link configuration error that would allow a user to configure,
   for example, an IPv4 source address and an IPv6 causing knet to spin
   at 100% of the CPU.
* Minor man pages fixes and improvements.
* Minor build and test suite fixes.
* Minor logging events fixes.

Known issues in this release:

* none.
