You cannot hot-add nodes with 1.3. A workaround is to pre-declare possible
future IPs, so that when the new node comes online, it adds automatically.

This is part of the proactive self-heal which is scheduled in the future
releases. As of now resync happens only on the next open() of the file.

3.       How far is the development for 1.4 release? Is there any

We are targetting April for 1.4.
