+title: OpenStack Nova and Neutron
+---
+
+One of the limitations of the jclouds implementation of the OpenStack Nova API is that is
was not able to directly talk to the Neutron service. It used legacy security group APIs to
manage access to instances, and there was no proper support for custom networking.
+
+Starting from Apache jclouds 2.1.0, an integration with OpenStack Neutron will be provided
and users will be able to configure their Nova APIs to interact with a custom Neutron deployment.
+<!-- more -->
+
+To achieve this, users will be able to use the recent **context linking** feature, where
APIs and providers that have dependencies between them can be *linked* so they can call each
other where needed.

This and the paragraph below are a bit confusing, because they talk about linking APIs and
providers but then clarify that by saying that it's actually "context linking". How about
something along the following lines:

"Allowing the Nova API to interact directly with a Neutron deployment is possible thanks to
jclouds' new [context linking](link to separate introducing context linking post?) feature,
Here's an example of how to allow a Nova API to interact with a Neutron API, using the `ContextLinking.linkContext`
helper method."

?
