Heartbeat 3.0.2 is the first official Heartbeat release since 2.1.3, released over 2 years ago. There have been a number of intermediate releases in the interim, including some Fedora releases labeled 3.0.0 and 3.0.1, but this is the first official Heartbeat 3.0 release. This means that Pacemaker, the definitive Linux cluster stack, continues to be fully supported on both the Heartbeat and Corosync/OpenAIS messaging layers.
The release tarball may be downloaded directly from the Mercurial repository, or from the Linux-HA web site. Debian packages will soon be available from Martin Loschwitz’ people.debian.org repository and are expected to make their way into Squeeze shortly.
And yes, we had planned to make this release in January. But 2/1/2010 just looked so neat as a release date.
