Release schedule for Corosync Needle (2.0)

Over the last 18 months, the Corosync development community has been hard at work making Corosync Needle (version 2.0.0) a reality.  This release offers an evolutionary step in Corosync by adding several community requested features, removing the troubling threads and plugins, and tidying up the quorum code base.

I would like to point out the dilligent work of Jan Friesse (Honza) for tackling the 15 or so feature backlog items on our feature list.  Angus Salkeld has taken the architectural step of moving the infrastructure (ipc, logging, and other infrastructure components) of Corosync into a separate project (http://www.libqb.org).  Finally I’d like to point out the excellent work of Fabio Di Nitto and his cabal for tackling the quorum code base to make it truly usable for bare metal clusters.

The release schedule is as follows:

Alpha		January 17, 2012	version 1.99.0
Beta		January 31, 2012	version 1.99.1
RC1		February 7, 2012	version 1.99.2
RC2		February 14, 2012	version 1.99.3
RC3		February 20, 2012	version 1.99.4
RC4		February 27, 2012	version 1.99.5
RC5		March 6, 2012		version 1.99.6
Release 2.0.0	March 13, 2012		version 2.0.0
