Libcloud 0.14.0-beta3 released

+ + + + + + + +
+

We are pleased to announce the release of Libcloud 0.14.0-beta3, a first +(beta) release in the 0.14.0 series.

+ +

The reason this is a beta and not a final release is that it includes some +pretty big changes (most notably the "region" argument change). I would +like those changes to get some more real-life testing before doing a final +release.

+ +

Being a first release in the 0.14.0 series means it brings many (and I mean +many!) new features, changes and improvements.

+ +

Release highlights

+ +
    +
  • To make working with providers which support multiple regions easier and +more user-friendly, some of the drivers have moved away from the "one +class per region" to a single class plus "region" argument model. Those +drivers include: EC2, Rackspace, ElasticHosts, Joyent, CloudFiles.
  • +
  • Addition of a programmatic way of updating the pricing file and ability +to use a custom pricing file. For more information, please see the +documentation
  • +
  • Addition of block storage management methods to the following drivers: +OpenNebula, OpenStack, EC2
  • +
  • Unification of the extension arguments for handling security groups in +the EC2 and OpenStack driver
  • +
  • Many new features and improvements in the CloudStack driver
  • +
  • New compute and loadbalancer driver for Google Compute Engine (GCE)
  • +
  • Ability to export Libcloud's DNS zone to BIND zone format
  • +
  • and much more!
  • +
+ +

Some of the changes noted above are also backward incompatible. For more +information on what has changed and how to update your code to work with +a new release, please visit the Upgrade Notes section in our +documentation.

+ +

Other non-code changes worth a mention

+ + + +

Libcloud 0.13.3 released

+ + + + + + + +
+

This release fixes a security issue with a potential leak of data contained on +a destroyed DigitalOcean node. Only users who are using a DigitalOcean driver +are affected.

+ +

Details about the vulnerability

+ +

DigitalOcean recently changed the default API behavior from scrub to +non-scrub when destroying a VM without notifying the customers and API +consumers.

+ +

Libcloud prior to this release doesn't explicitly send "scrub_data" query +parameter when destroying a node. This means nodes which are destroyed using +Libcloud are vulnerable to later customers stealing data contained on them.

+ +

This release fixes that by always sending "scrub_data" query parameter when +destroying a DigitalOcean node.

+ +

If you are using a DigitalOcean driver, you are strongly encouraged to +upgrade (or downgrade if you are using 0.14.0-beta3 beta release) to this +release.

+ +

For more information, please see the Security page.

+ +

Quick update about 0.13.3 release and DigitalOcean vulnerability

+ + + + + + + +
+

This is a quick update about the recent 0.13.3 security release and the +DigitalOcean vulnerability.

+ +

DigitalOcean updated their blog post. The updated post says that +scrubbing is now enabled by default for all the newly issued destroy +requests:

+ +
+

All Destroys Default to Scrub

+ +

We have updated the destroy method to scrub on all destroys, both for +web and API requests.

+
+ +

This means that no action is required on the client side and upgrading +to 0.13.3 should not be necessary anymore.

+
+
+ +
+ +

Welcome to the new website

+ + + + + + + +
+

Today we are pleased to announce a new, improved and more user friendly version +of our website.

+ +

Background and History

+ +

Original website was developed and published back in 2009 when the project was +first announced.

+ +

A lot has changed since 2009 and during that time the web has been evolving at +a rapid pace. Now we have terms such as responsive web design, great +front-end frameworks for building responsive websites such as Bootstrap +and Zurb and many other new things which didn't exist or weren't widely +used back when we first launched.

+ +

During this time we focused most of our efforts on improving the code and +making the library better. This meant the website didn't receive a lot of +needed love and attention so design-wise, it was mostly stuck in the 2009 era.

+ +

Over the years it has become apparent that presentation and documentation is +also equally or even more important then the code itself, so we have decided +to fix some of the "mistakes" we have made in the past.

+ +

A couple of months back we launched a new documentation and today, we are +happy to present you a new and much improved website which was built with +modern tools and principles in mind.

+ +

Improvements and New Features

+ +
+ +

Responsive design makes a site pleasure to use on a + variety of devices and screen sizes. Image by placeit.net.

+
+ +

New website includes many improvements and new features. Some of the more +important ones are listed bellow.

+ +

More modern and user-friendly design

+ +

New website now features a more modern and user-friendly design. This includes +bigger fonts, better typography and so on.

+ +

On top of that, the new design is fully responsive which means you can now +better enjoy the content on smaller devices such as mobile phones and tablets.

+ +

Improved and re-designed landing page

+ +

We know that landing pages are very important so we have decided to totally +re-design and re-organise ours.

+ +

New landing page now displays all the important information (project features, +code examples, showcases some companies and projects using Libcloud) and also +features a more clear call to action.

+ +

Blog section

+ +

New website now features a fully-fledged blog.

+ +

We will use the blog to post important project news, keep you up to date with +what is currently going on and post case studies and stories from projects and +companies which are using Libcloud.

+ +

If you are using an RSS reader to stay up to date, we also offer an +ATOM feed.

+ +

Updated Credits Page

+ +

Credits page now features an up to date list of people who have +contributed code and documentation.

+ +

As noted on that page, the list is automatically generated from the CHANGES +file so it might not be 100% accurate.

+ +

Search Engine Optimizations

+ +

We have made some changes which will make our website a bit more friendly to +the web crawlers and search engines. We hope this will make it easier for you +to more quickly find the content you are looking for.

+ +

The changes we have made include improvements to the underlying HTML markup, +addition of the OpenGraph tags and an addition of a sitemap.

+ +

Under the Hood

+ +

Old website was powered by Apache CMS. It mostly worked good enough for +simple use cases, but a small user base means it lacks a large ecosystem around +it which is pretty standard for many other popular content management systems.

+ +

Because of that, we have decided to switch to Jekyll, a Ruby based static +website and blog engine.

+ +

On top of that, the new website is fully responsive and built using +Bootstrap 3 front-end framework.

+ +

Similar to the old website, source code is still stored in an SVN repository +so all the benefits we get from version control are preserved.

+ +

Source code of the new website can be found in the SVN repository.

+ +

Conclusion

+ +

We hope you will like and enjoy the new website.

+ +

We also hope the new website now better reflects the underlying evolution of +the library and the direction we are heading.

+ +
