  when selecting the load balance node.

* Allow to configure to not trigger failover when PostgreSQL 
  is shutdown by admin or killed by pg_terminate_backend. 

* Add new fields to pcp_proc_info, SHOW POOL_PROCESSES and 
  SHOW POOL_POOLS command to display more useful information to admin.

* Allow pcp_node_info to list all backend nodes information.

  SHOW POOL NODES command and friends.

* Add a new parameter which represents the recovery source 
  hostname to recovery_1st_stage_command and recovery_2nd_stage_command.
