We are pleased to announce the general availability of kronosnet v1.6

kronosnet (or knet for short) is the new underlying network protocol for 
Linux HA components (corosync), that features ability to use multiple 
links between nodes, active/active and active/passive link failover 
policies, automatic link recovery, FIPS compliant encryption (nss and/or 
openssl), automatic PMTUd and in general better performances compared to 
the old network protocol.

Highlights in this release:

* [IMPORTANT] Fix a PMTUd packet size issue when using crypto
* Fix build with older versions of openssl
* Fix a CPU spinning issue when iptables are set incorrectly
* Fix a SCTP kernel <-> userland compatibility issue
* Minor other fixes across the code and build infrastructure
* libnozzle hits the first GA release. There are currently NO supported
   apps/users for this library but soon(´ish) corosync will add support
   for it. As this is the first release please be gentle :)

Known issues in this release:

* libnozzle needs better porting to FreeBSD (even tho it works as-is).
