Oracle11g CRS new command

Just found out that the functionality of the "crsctl" command has been expanded in Oracle11g. Prior to Oracle11g, we did not have the ability to check the status of the cluster on other (non-local) nodes in the cluster using "crsctl" - but oracle11g makes it now possible:

[root@racnode01 bin]# ./crsctl check cluster
racnode01 ONLINE
racnode02 ONLINE
[root@racnode01 bin]#

Of course, we could very well use "crsstat" command to determine the status of CRS on non-local nodes - but not straight-forward and simple.
