ucarp 1.3 is now available on http://www.blastwave.org/testing

This should be the 1st version of ucarp working well on Solaris too, 
thanks to some patches a volunteer recently submitted.

UCARP is a freebsd version of a VRRP-like vip redundancy protocol.
See http://www.ucarp.org/project/ucarp/

Patches are:
  This patch is needed for Solaris 8 to get a working failover.

  Patch to write a PID file ofter starting of ucarp. For easier shutdown
  of ucarp inside of a init script.

  With this patch a non privileged (monitoring process) can write a file
  to disable ucarp to invoke a failover depending not only on hardware
  failure but also on service level (for example webserver) problem.
  It is importend that only the monitoring process can write/remove this
  disable file.

  Solaris only patch (tested on Solaris 8) to set the interface inside of
  ucarp instead of the up/downscripts.
