Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Libcloud 0.11.1 release
Date Thu, 02 Aug 2012 00:31:25 GMT
Libcloud is a Python library that abstracts away the differences among
multiple cloud provider APIs. It allows users to manage cloud services
(servers, storage, load balancers, DNS) offered by many different providers
through a single, unified and easy to use API.

This release fixes a possible SSL man-in-the-middle vulnerability inside
the code which performs the SSL certificate validation. For more
information about the vulnerability, please see the "Security" page -
http://libcloud.apache.org/security.ht
pageml<http://libcloud.apache.org/security.html>
.

Everyone using an older version is strongly encouraged to upgrade to this
release.
