1
Version 1.2.3
2
  - more tweaks to the disk activation code (especially helpful for DRBD)
3
  - change the default ‘gnt-instance list’ output format, now there is
4
    one combined status field (see the manpage for the exact values this
5
    field will have)
6
  - some more fixes for the mac export to hooks change
7
  - make Ganeti not break with DRBD 8.2.x (which changed the version
8
    format in /proc/drbd) (issue 24)
9
  - add an upgrade tool from ‘remote_raid1’ disk template to ‘drbd’ disk
10
    template, allowing migration from DRBD0.7+MD to DRBD8
11

    
12
Version 1.2.2
13
  - fix ‘gnt-instance modify’ breakage introduced in 1.2.1 with the HVM
14
    support (issue 23)
15
  - add command aliases infrastructure and a few aliases
16
  - allow listing of VCPUs in the gnt-instance list and improve the man
17
    pages and the --help option of gnt-node/gnt-instance list
18
  - fix gnt-backup list with down nodes (issue 21)
19
  - change the tools location (move from $pkgdatadir to
20
    $pkglibdir/tools)
21
  - fix the dist archive and add a check for including svn/git files in
22
    the future
23
  - some developer-related changes: improve the burnin and the QA
24
    suite, add an upload script for testing during development
25

    
26
Version 1.2.1
27
  - experimental HVM support, read the install document, section
28
    "Initializing the cluster"
29
  - allow for the PVM hypervisor per-instance kernel and initrd paths
30
  - add a new command ‘gnt-cluster verify-disks’ which uses a new
31
    algorithm to improve the reconnection of the DRBD pairs if the
32
    device on the secondary node has gone away
33
  - make logical volume code auto-activate LVs at disk activation time
34
  - slightly improve the speed of activating disks
35
  - allow specification of the MAC address at instance creation time,
36
    and changing it later via ‘gnt-instance modify’
37
  - fix handling of external commands that generate lots of output on
38
    stderr
39
  - update documentation with regard to minimum version of DRBD8
40
    supported
41

    
42
Version 1.2.0
43
  - Log the ‘xm create’ output to the node daemon log on failure (to
44
    help diagnosing the error)
45
  - In debug mode, log all external commands output if failed to the
46
    logs
47
  - Change parsing of lvm commands to ignore stderr
48

    
49
Version 1.2b3
50
  - Another round of updates to the DRBD 8 code to deal with more
51
    failures in the replace secondary node operation
52
  - Some more logging of failures in disk operations (lvm, drbd)
53
  - A few documentation updates
54
  - QA updates
55

    
56
Version 1.2b2
57
  - Change configuration file format from Python's Pickle to JSON.
58
    Upgrading is possible using the cfgupgrade utility.
59
  - Add support for DRBD 8.0 (new disk template `drbd`) which allows for
60
    faster replace disks and is more stable (DRBD 8 has many
61
    improvements compared to DRBD 0.7)
62
  - Added command line tags support (see man pages for gnt-instance,
63
    gnt-node, gnt-cluster)
64
  - Added instance rename support
65
  - Added multi-instance startup/shutdown
66
  - Added cluster rename support
67
  - Added `gnt-node evacuate` to simplify some node operations
68
  - Added instance reboot operation that can speedup reboot as compared
69
    to stop and start
70
  - Soften the requirement that hostnames are in FQDN format
71
  - The ganeti-watcher now activates drbd pairs after secondary node
72
    reboots
73
  - Removed dependency on debian's patched fping that uses the
74
    non-standard -S option
75
  - Now the OS definitions are searched for in multiple, configurable
76
    paths (easier for distros to package)
77
  - Some changes to the hooks infrastructure (especially the new
78
    post-configuration update hook)
79
  - Other small bugfixes
