Hi all,

I've just (finally!) released the next version of feedbackd, 0.4.0.

Feedbackd is a client/server system that provides dynamic feedback of server 
load in a Linux Virtual Server (LVS)-based cluster. Monitor plugins are used 
to measure the health of each server, allowing a flexible way to report load 
back to the load balancer. It also facilitates the addition and removal of 
servers from the cluster. 

The latest release is based around the following changes:

 * Updated to use the new libipvs interface (version 1.24)
 * The master process will now manage virtual services on the director, manual
   addition is no longer necessary
 * Compilation of each plugin can be disabled (useful to work around libperl
   linking problems where the perl module is not required)
 * Now endian and 64-bit safe (tested on ppc64 arch)
 * Build process no longer uses automake and libtool - distribution size has
   been reduced dramatically
 * Code cleanup, minor bugfixes

The feedbackd system has a website up at:

As always: comments, suggestions and bug reports are welcome.
