June in OpenStack: the diablo-2 milestone

About a month ago I commented on the features delivered in the diablo-1 milestone. Last week we released the diablo-2 milestone for your testing and feature evaluation pleasure.

Most of the changes to Glance were made under the hood. In particular the new WSGI code from Nova was ported to Glance, and images collections can now be sorted by a subset of the image model attributes. Most of the groundwork to support Keystone authentication was done, but that should only be available in diablo-3 !

Those same initial Keystone integration steps were also done for Nova, along with plenty of other features. We now support distributed scheduling for complex deployments, together with a new instance referencing model. Was also added during this timeframe: support for floating IPs (in OpenStack API), a basic mechanism for pushing notifications out to interested parties, global firewall rules, and an instance type extra specs table that can be used in a capabilities-aware scheduler. More invisible to the user, we completed efforts to standardize error codes and refactored the OpenStack API serialization mechanism.

And there is plenty more coming up in diablo-3… scheduled for release on July 28th.
