  which case the output is in ``doc/man-html``. The configure-time
57 57
  option is ``--enable-manpages-in-doc``. Sphinx 1.0 or higher is
58 58
  required.
59
- A new htool called ``hroller`` helps scheduling parallel shutdown of
60
  nodes on clusters where all instances are shut down, but without ever
61
  rebooting both primary and secondary node for an instance at the same
62
  time.
63
- Queries not needing locks or RPC access to the node can now be
64
  performed by the confd daemon, making them independent from jobs, and
65
  thus faster to execute. This is selectable at configure time.
66
- The KVM hypervisor has been updated with many new hypervisor
67
  parameters, including a generic one for passing arbitrary command line
68
  values. See a complete list in :manpage:`gnt-instance(8)`.
69
- A new tool, called ``mon-collector``, is the stand-alone executor of
70
  the data collectors for a monitoring system. As of this version, it
71
  just includes the DRBD data collector, that can be executed by calling
72
  ``mon-collector`` using the ``drbd`` parameter. See
73
  :manpage:`mon-collector(7)`.
74
- New ``exclusive-storage`` node parameter added. When it's set to true,
75
  physical disks are assigned in an exclusive fashion to instances, as
76
  documented in :doc:`Partitioned Ganeti <design-partitioned>`.
77
  Currently, only instances using the ``plain`` disk template are
78
  supported.
79
- New network management functionality to support automatic allocation
80
  of IP addresses and managing of network parameters. See
81
  :manpage:`gnt-network(8)` for more details.
82
- New external storage backend, to allow managing arbitrary storage
83
  systems external to the cluster. See
84
  :manpage:`ganeti-extstorage-interface(7)`.
