The biggest feature enhancement is coherent cluster-wide shared mapped
file support through CFS. This allows programs such as RPM and keepalive
to work with a CFS root. Another enhancement is the addition of a few
more remote socket ops that allow accept(), getsockname(), and
getpeername() to be called on a socket that is remote from its process.
Also, --bind mounts are now completely local, which is a quick-and-dirty
way to allow context-dependent symlinks (CDSLs). True CDSLs will be
available sometime in the future.
This release includes fixes for various build problems. It also fixes
some problems with large numbers of nodes joining simultaneously. ICS
and CLMS logging has been improved, and a bunch of other bugs have been
Included is a new version of Cluster Tools. It changes the HA LVS
configuration to use an XML format.
It makes init get the maxnodes value from the kernel, so that init
doesn't need to be recompiled for a larger cluster. Also, init has been
fixed so that it doesn't SIGSEGV if it's built with DEBUG enabled. The
build scripts no longer depend on PATH containing anything other than
/bin. The cluster_lilo command now properly supports lilo's -R option.
Overall this release improves on 0.7.0 by fixing bugs and adding a few
new cool features.
