Hi all,

I am happy to announce that source code for the first release candidate
for Pacemaker version 2.0.3 is now available at:


Highlights previously discussed on this list include a dynamic cluster
recheck interval (you don't have to care about cluster-recheck-interval 
for failure-timeout or most rules now), new Pacemaker Remote options
for security hardening (listen address and TLS priorities), and Year
2038 compatibility.

Also, crm_mon now supports the new --output-as/--output-to options, and
has some tweaks to the text and HTML output that will hopefully make it
easier to read.

A couple of changes that haven't been mentioned yet:

* A new fence-reaction cluster option controls whether the local node
will stop pacemaker or panic the local host if notified of its own
fencing. This generally happens with fabric fencing (e.g. fence_scsi)
when the host and networking are still functional. The default, "stop",
is the previous behavior. The new option of "panic" makes more sense
for a node that's been fenced, so it may become the default in a future
release, but we are not doing so at this time for backward
compatibility. Therefore, if you prefer the "stop" behavior (for
example, to avoid losing logs when fenced), it is recommended to
specify it explicitly.

* We discovered that the ocf:pacemaker:pingd agent, a legacy alias for
ocf:pacemaker:ping, has actually been broken since 1.1.3 (!). Rather
than fix it, we are formally deprecating it, and will remove it in a
future release.

As usual, there were many bug fixes and log message improvements as
well. For more details about changes in this release, please see the
change log:


Everyone is encouraged to download, compile and test the new release.
We do many regression tests and simulations, but we can't cover all
possible use cases, so your feedback is important and appreciated.

Many thanks to all contributors of source code to this release,
including Aleksei Burlakov, Chris Lumens, Gao,Yan, Hideo Yamauchi, Jan
Pokorný, John Eckersberg, Kazunori INOUE, Ken Gaillot, Klaus Wenninger,
Konstantin Kharlamov, Munenari, Roger Zhou, S. Schuberth, Tomas
Jelinek, and Yuusuke Iida.

1.1.22-rc1, with selected backports from this release, will also be
released soon.
