Subject Re: [DRAFT FOR REVIEW] Announcing CloudStack v4.4 [was Re: press release for 4.4]
Date Thu, 07 Aug 2014 16:20:43 GMT
H Aaron, I asked Sally to hold off because people in the field were
reporting serious downtime And it seems unwise for some to upgrade. I hope
to get a release candidate out by sunday night for 4.4.1. Do you have
success reports on 4.4 from clients?
