Subject RE: Drop OVM in 4.0?
Date Wed, 17 Oct 2012 22:06:24 GMT

I don't think anyone wants to drop the feature. The thought was, will fixing
support for this HV push release back by a large amount? And if so, then
could the feature fix come after 4.0 in the form of 4.0.1.

And I completely agree that if this is the case, it should be documented, or
the upgrade be blocked for current OVM users, as to avoid confusion.

I agree, this is a major feature to drop support for.  This is one major
feature (of many) that drove us to favor Cloudstack over some of the other
IaaS options out there.  If it doesn't block 4.0, I would make it very clear
that the support for OVM is not in 4.0 so that a customer doesn't upgrade
thinking (assuming) you wouldn't drop such a major feature.  Maybe go as far
as adding something in the upgrade that if OVM is currently used, the
upgrade fails.
