Subject [draft for review] -4.9 -press release
Date Wed, 17 Aug 2016 10:15:28 GMT
All
I've drafted the following for the 4.9 press release.
Please chime in with comments/changes/etc (bearing in mind, that we really need to get a release
out ASAP as its been already 5 days since the [announce] was sent)

Despite the scale of this release , there are not many super-exciting/headline-grabbing new
features so I've cherry picked these for the Press release:

- Enhancements to Cloudstack networking model including deeper integration with Nuage VSP
SDN
-Out of band power management of hosts through IPMI,iLO,DRAC
-User defined security roles
-Over 180 minor enhancements and issues fixed

Happy if somebody else can help find some other headline features from the release notes
(BTW - the 180 came from the complete list of issues fixed)
