- Deltacloud is a cross cloud abstraction API that allows management of resources (compute
and storage) across different IaaS cloud computing providers using a single, open API. At
present Deltacloud supports management of Amazon EC2, Rackspace, Gogrid, Rimuhosting, Terremark,
RHEV-M, vSphere, IBM SBC, Eucalyptus, Opennebula compute resources, as well as Amazon S3,
Microsoft Azure, Eucalyptus and Rackspace Cloudfiles storage resources.(project add text here)

  The last three months have been characterized by ceaseless work towards our 0.4.0 release,
which has now been posted as a release candidate.
  
  We also voted three new committers in during that time.
  
  We are in the process of preparing for graduation to a TLP under the Board; hopefully, a
resolution will be posted before the August Board meeting.
+ 
+ Improvements/Fixes/Additions included in upcoming 0.4.0 release (and since the last report)
include:
+ 
+ Server:
+   * deltacloudd: new option --drivers to list all drivers
+   * deltacloudd: new options --ssl, --ssl-key and --ssl-cert to
+     enable HTTPS support
+   * API entrypoint reports features in JSON
+   * unify response behavior: any operation returning a 201 Created also
+     sets the Location header to point to the new resource; ensure the
+     status for an operation is the same regardless of output format
+   * Add type to public addresses; type can be one of 'ipv4', 'mac', 'vnc',
+     and 'hostname'
+   * Complete overhaul of the HTML UI, now uses jquery-mobile
+   * Response status for attach/detach storage is now 202 (instead of 302)
+   * Response status for get/set blob metadata is 204 No Content
+   * Response status for (un)register with load balancer is 204 No Content
+   * The user_name feature now reports the permissible length of the name
+     as the 'max_length' constraint
+   * Add Date header to responses as per RFC 2616
+   * New collection 'firewalls' for managing sets of firewalling rules
+   * split server/config/drivers.yaml into individual files so each driver
+     can be packaged separately; gives deployers better choice of what
+     drivers they want enabled
+   * Numerous bug fixes and improvements to the test suite
+   * Drivers
+     + Condor
+       - new driver to run a simple cloud based on the Condor grid scheduler
+     + EC2
+       - Fix bug in reboot instance so that the details returned are those
+         of the stopped instance, not some random instance
+       - Support getting and updating blob metadata
+       - support destroying images
+       - support firewalls (security groups)
+       - do not support user_name anymore; instance tagging is too fragile
+         in EC2 to be used reliably for this
+       - do not support registering an instance with a load balancer upon
+         creation anymore
+       - stream blob PUT to backend (requires thin)
+       - support attaching EBS snapshot to instance upon creation (feature
+         'attach_snapshot')
+       - support elastic IP's
+     + Eucalyptus
+       - support firewalls (security groups)
+       - support elastic IP's
+     + Gogrid
+       - when retrieving single realm, make sure we return the right one
+       - correctly capture load_balancer params
+       - report a listener if load_balancer has no instances
+     + Mock
+       - support destroying images
+     + Rackspace
+       - support destroying images
+       - stream blob PUT to backend (requires thin)
+     + RHEV-M
+       - support creating and destroying images
+       - report VNC address of instances
+       - can use Audrey's confserver to fetch IP of an instance
+     + vSphere
+       - turns a VMWare vSphere installation into a cloud
+       - driver stateless, state is stored in vSphere's data store in
+         'deltacloud' folder
+       - images are template VM's
+       - single HWP, whose max_cpu and max_memory are based on available
+         cpus and memory across all vSphere hosts
+       - support data injection via user_data and user_iso (upload entire
+         ISO image) For both, instance gets virtual CD-ROM with injected
+         data
+ 
+ Client:
+   * make authentication info for instances available
+   * retrieve type and address for public addresses of an instance
+   * deltacloudc: allow specifying bucket location when creating a bucket
+ 
+ Site:
+   * Major rewrite of REST API docs, covers the entire API now
+   * Add libdeltacloud API docs
+
