The "May2011" page has been changed by Tomaz.


- (project add text here)
+ Libcloud is a unified interface into various cloud service providers,
+ written in Python. Libcloud joined the Incubator on 3 November 2009.
+ During this month we have addressed all of the open graduation issues and started a TLP
voting thread on the incubator mailing list.
+ Community
+ ---------
+ The Libcloud community continues to grow at a nice steady pace. In the past few months we
have received multiple community contributions, some of them are listed bellow:
+ - compute driver for
+ - compute driver for
+ - compute driver for the OpSource cloud
+ - compute driver for OpenStack (not merged yet, still working with the original author on
polishing it and resolving some open issues)
+ - libvirt proof-of-concept compute driver (not merged yet, still debating on how we can
fit it into our project)
+ During this month (May) we have also agreed upon a new chair (Tomaz Muraus).
+ To make our website more easy to update and more relevant to the users we have ported it
to the Apache CMS and added two new sections - "Community resources" and "Contributing". 
+ Some of the Libcloud developers have also been present at PyCon in Atlanta in March where
we have held a sprint.
+ As part of our ongoing effort to engage the community and inspire new contributors, one
of the committers will give a talk about Libcloud at EuroPython 2011 in Italy where we will
also held a sprint.
+ Releases
+ --------
+ The last stable release of Libcloud is 0.4.2 which was released on January 17th. We are
currently working towards 0.5.0 which is considered as a big milestone, because it will include
many new features, fixes and improvements:
+ - new Storage API
+ - new Load-balancer API
+ - new compute drivers
+ - fixes in the existing compute drivers
+ - increased test coverage
+ This version is planned to be released before the end of May.
