Sally, quick note to say there have been a bunch of comments, and we're aborting round one
of the vote. So it's safe to say there'll be another draft for you to look at soon.
In the meantime, I attempted a re-draft. (Easier than picking things out with comments.)

[ANNOUNCE] Apache CloudStack 4.0.0-Incubating Released

The Apache CloudStack (Incubating) project is pleased to announce the immediate
availability of the CloudStack 4.0.0-incubating release. 
 Download your copy here:  
 CloudStack is an integrated orchestration platform for building a feature-complete 
IaaS. CloudStack includes the compute, networking, accounting, storage, and

user interface components to needed for private, hybrid, or public clouds.

This is the first release from the Apache Incubator, and represents the culmination 
of more than six months work by the CloudStack community. The release includes 
more than a dozen new features, many bugfixes, security fixes. 
##New Features:

 * Inter-VLAN Routing (VPC)
 * Site-to-Site VPN
 * Local Storage Support for Data Volumes
 * Virtual Resource Tagging
 * Secure Console Access on XenServer
 * Added the ability to create a VM without immediately starting it (via API)

 * Upload an Existing Volume to a Virtual Machine
 * Dedicated High-Availability Hosts
 * Support for Amazon Web Services API (formerly a separate package)
 * AWS API Extensions to include Tagging
 * Support for Nicira NVP (L2)

 * Ceph RBD Support for KVM
 * Support for Caringo as Secondary Storage
 * KVM Hypervisor support upgraded to work with Ubuntu 12.04 and RHEL 6.3

Apache CloudStack is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache
Software Foundation (ASF). Incubation is required of all newly accepted
projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure,
communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner

consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation status
is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the
code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by

the ASF.
