Hello all,

Libcloud team is pleased to announce the release of Libcloud 0.7.1!

This release represents another big milestone for us and introduces a support for Python 3!

Other notable changes:

- New Las Vegas location for the CloudSigma provider
- Improvements to the OpenStack driver
- Improvements to the OpenNebula driver
- Support for Amazon EC2 new "Cluster Compute Eight Extra Large" instance size

This release also removes old, deprecated (pre-0.5) paths. If you still haven't updated your code you need to do it now otherwise it won't work with 0.7.1 and future releases.
