[ANNOUNCE] Apache CloudStack 4.0.0-incubating Released

The Apache CloudStack project is pleased to announce the 4.0.0-incubating release of the CloudStack
Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud orchestration platform. This is the first release
from within the Apache Incubator, the entry path into the Apache Software Foundation (ASF).

Apache CloudStack is an integrated software platform that allows users to build a feature-rich
IaaS. CloudStack includes an intuitive user interface and rich API for managing the compute,
networking, accounting, and storage for private, hybrid, or public clouds. 

The 4.0.0-incubating release 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, and a fully audited codebase that complies with ASF guidelines. 

##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

##Downloads

The official source code release can be downloaded from:

http://cloudstack.org/downloads.html

In addition to the official source code release, the project has also made convenience binaries
available on the Apache CloudStack download page.

##CloudStack Collaboration Conference

The CloudStack project will have its first collaboration conference in Las Vegas, from November
30th through December 2nd at The Venetian. The conference will provide an opportunity for
the community to learn more about CloudStack, share best practices for deploying CloudStack,
and discuss ideas for upcoming releases.

##Incubating

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.
