New committer Hutson Betts joins our team

+ + + + + + + +
+

Hi all,

+ +

I just wanted to let everyone know that the Libcloud PMC has decided to +invite a new committer - Hutson Betts (hbetts).

+ +

He has previously mostly contributed to the OpenNebula driver and the +networking API.

+ +

We believe that granting him the committer status will allow him to more +easily and directly contribute to the project.

+ +

Please help us welcome him!

DNS API allows users to manage DNS service provided by many different +providers. This release includes a driver for Linode DNS ( +http://www.linode.com/features.cfm), Zerigo DNS (http://www.zerigo.com/) +and Rackspace Cloud DNS ( +http://www.rackspace.com/cloud/cloudhostingproducts/dns/). In the future +we also plan to expand it (hopefully with your help) and add new drivers +for providers such as Amazon and others.

Libcloud 0.5.2 released

+ + + + + + + +
+

Hello all,

+ +

I would like to announce Libcloud 0.5.2. This release primary fixes two bugs +which were introduced in Libcloud 0.5.0 and improves listing of the objects +in the containers which contain more objects that fit into a single +response.

+ +

Notable changes, bug-fixes and improvements

+ +

Compute

+ +
    +
  • Fix a regression in the deploy_node() method and make it more robust
  • +
  • Fix a regression in the Nimbus driver create_node() method
  • +
  • Improved node name and tag handling in the Amazon EC2 driver
  • +
  • Improved pricing and response handling in the OpenStack driver
  • +
  • New driver for SkaliCloud (skalicloud.com)
  • +
  • New driver for ServerLove (serverlove.com)
  • +
+ +

Storage

+ +
    +
  • Fix handling of the containers with a lot of objects. Now an iterator +object is returned when user calls list_container_objects() method +and this object transparently handles pagination.
  • +
