+  
+
+  
+    
+  
+  <span class="post-date-author">By Anthony Shaw on Apr 11, 2016</span>
+
+  <div class="post-content">
+    <p>We are pleased to announce the release of Libcloud 1.0.0-rc2.</p>
+
+<p>This the second pre-release in the 1.0.0 series which means it brings many new
+features, improvements, bug-fixes, and DNS drivers.</p>
+
+<h3>Release highlights</h3>
+
+<p>This includes:</p>
+
+<ul>
+<li>Deprecated drivers that were no longer available such as Ninefold, IBM SCE <a href="http://libcloud.apache.org/blog/2016/02/16/new-drivers-deprecated-drivers.html">more details</a></li>
+<li>The Amazon EC2 driver has been changed to use</li>
+<li>Introduce new <code>list_regions</code>` class method on the base driver class</li>
+<li>Support for Dimension Data backup</li>
+<li>Added NSOne, LuaDNS, NearlyFreeSpeech.NET DNS drivers</li>
+<li>Added Aliyun compute, load balancer and storage drivers</li>
+<li>Added Outscale storage driver</li>
+</ul>
+
+<p>Full change log can be found at <a href="https://libcloud.readthedocs.org/en/latest/changelog.html">here</a>.</p>
+
+<h3>Important breaking change-  Amazon EC2 driver changes</h3>
+
+<p>The Amazon EC2 API was updated to consolidate the regional-based drivers into a single driver with a region argument in the constructor.</p>
+
+<p>Amazon Instances should now be instantiated using the following syntax:</p>
+<div class="highlight"><pre><code class="python language-python" data-lang="python"><span class="kn">from</span> <span class="nn">libcloud.compute.types</span> <span class="kn">import</span> <span class="n">Provider</span>
+<span class="kn">from</span> <span class="nn">libcloud.compute.providers</span> <span class="kn">import</span> <span class="n">get_driver</span>
+
+<span class="n">cls</span> <span class="o">=</span> <span class="n">get_driver</span><span class="p">(</span><span class="n">Provider</span><span class="o">.</span><span class="n">EC2</span><span class="p">,</span> <span class="n">region</span><span class="o">=</span><span class="s">&#39;us-east-i1&#39;</span><span class="p">)</span>
+<span class="n">driver</span> <span class="o">=</span> <span class="n">cls</span><span class="p">(</span><span class="s">&#39;access key&#39;</span><span class="p">,</span> <span class="s">&#39;secret key&#39;</span><span class="p">)</span>
+</code></pre></div>
+<p>This brings the Amazon API inline with the other drivers, makes it easier to maintain and switch between regions.</p>
+
+<h3>Bug fixes</h3>
+
+<h4>General</h4>
+
+<ul>
+<li><p>Fix a bug with consuming stdout and stderr in the paramiko SSH client which
+would manifest itself under very rare condition when a consumed chunk only
+contained a single byte or part of a multi byte UTF-8 character.
+[Lakshmi Kannan, Tomaz Muraus]</p></li>
+<li><p>Increase default chunk size from <code>1024</code> to <code>4096</code> bytes in the paramiko
+SSH client. This results in smaller number of receive calls on the average.
+[Tomaz Muraus]</p></li>
+<li><p>Fix to Dimension Data API address for Middle-East and Africa
+(GITHUB-700)
+[Anthony Shaw]</p></li>
+<li><p>Addition of Dimension Data Australia federal government region to dimension data
+drivers.
+(GITHUB-700)
+[Anthony Shaw]</p></li>
+<li><p>Throw a more user-friendly exception on &quot;No address associated with hostname&quot;.
+(GITHUB-711, GITHUB-714, LIBCLOUD-803)
+[Tomaz Muraus, Scott Crunkleton]</p></li>
+<li><p>Remove deprecated provider constants with the region in the name and related
+driver classes (e.g. <code>EC2_US_EAST</code>, etc.).</p>
+
+<p>Those drivers have moved to single provider constant + <code>region</code> constructor
+argument model.
+[Tomaz Muraus]</p></li>
+<li><p>Introduce new <code>list_regions</code><code>class method on the base driver class. This
+method is to be used with provider drivers which support multiple regions and
+</code><code>region</code>` constructor argument. It allows users to enumerate available /
+supported regions.
+[Tomaz Muraus]</p></li>
+</ul>

+
+<h3>Bug fixes</h3>
+
+<h4>General</h4>
+
+<ul>
+<li><p>Fix a bug with consuming stdout and stderr in the paramiko SSH client which
+would manifest itself under very rare condition when a consumed chunk only
+contained a single byte or part of a multi byte UTF-8 character.
+[Lakshmi Kannan, Tomaz Muraus]</p></li>
+<li><p>Increase default chunk size from <code>1024</code> to <code>4096</code> bytes in the paramiko
+SSH client. This results in smaller number of receive calls on the average.
+[Tomaz Muraus]</p></li>
+<li><p>Fix to Dimension Data API address for Middle-East and Africa
+(GITHUB-700)
+[Anthony Shaw]</p></li>
+<li><p>Addition of Dimension Data Australia federal government region to dimension data
+drivers.
+(GITHUB-700)
+[Anthony Shaw]</p></li>
+<li><p>Throw a more user-friendly exception on &quot;No address associated with hostname&quot;.
+(GITHUB-711, GITHUB-714, LIBCLOUD-803)
+[Tomaz Muraus, Scott Crunkleton]</p></li>
+<li><p>Remove deprecated provider constants with the region in the name and related
+driver classes (e.g. <code>EC2_US_EAST</code>, etc.).</p>
+
+<p>Those drivers have moved to single provider constant + <code>region</code> constructor
+argument model.
+[Tomaz Muraus]</p></li>
+<li><p>Introduce new <code>list_regions</code><code>class method on the base driver class. This
+method is to be used with provider drivers which support multiple regions and
+</code><code>region</code>` constructor argument. It allows users to enumerate available /
+supported regions.

+
+&lt;h3&gt;Important breaking change-  Amazon EC2 driver changes&lt;/h3&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;The Amazon EC2 API was updated to consolidate the regional-based drivers into a single driver with a region argument in the constructor.&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;Amazon Instances should now be instantiated using the following syntax:&lt;/p&gt;
+&lt;div class=&quot;highlight&quot;&gt;&lt;pre&gt;&lt;code class=&quot;python language-python&quot; data-lang=&quot;python&quot;&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;kn&quot;&gt;from&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;nn&quot;&gt;libcloud.compute.types&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;kn&quot;&gt;import&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;Provider&lt;/span&gt;
+&lt;span class=&quot;kn&quot;&gt;from&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;nn&quot;&gt;libcloud.compute.providers&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;kn&quot;&gt;import&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;get_driver&lt;/span&gt;
+
+&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;cls&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;=&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;get_driver&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;(&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;Provider&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;EC2&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;,&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;region&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;=&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;s&quot;&gt;&amp;#39;us-east-i1&amp;#39;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;)&lt;/span&gt;
+&lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;driver&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;o&quot;&gt;=&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;n&quot;&gt;cls&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;(&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;s&quot;&gt;&amp;#39;access key&amp;#39;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;,&lt;/span&gt; &lt;span class=&quot;s&quot;&gt;&amp;#39;secret key&amp;#39;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;p&quot;&gt;)&lt;/span&gt;
+&lt;/code&gt;&lt;/pre&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
+&lt;p&gt;This brings the Amazon API inline with the other drivers, makes it easier to maintain and switch between regions.&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;h3&gt;Bug fixes&lt;/h3&gt;
+
+&lt;h4&gt;General&lt;/h4&gt;
+
+&lt;ul&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;&lt;p&gt;Fix a bug with consuming stdout and stderr in the paramiko SSH client which
+would manifest itself under very rare condition when a consumed chunk only
+contained a single byte or part of a multi byte UTF-8 character.
+[Lakshmi Kannan, Tomaz Muraus]&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;&lt;p&gt;Increase default chunk size from &lt;code&gt;1024&lt;/code&gt; to &lt;code&gt;4096&lt;/code&gt; bytes in the paramiko
+SSH client. This results in smaller number of receive calls on the average.

+&lt;li&gt;&lt;p&gt;Remove deprecated provider constants with the region in the name and related
+driver classes (e.g. &lt;code&gt;EC2_US_EAST&lt;/code&gt;, etc.).&lt;/p&gt;
+
+&lt;p&gt;Those drivers have moved to single provider constant + &lt;code&gt;region&lt;/code&gt; constructor
+argument model.
+[Tomaz Muraus]&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
+&lt;li&gt;&lt;p&gt;Introduce new &lt;code&gt;list_regions&lt;/code&gt;&lt;code&gt;class method on the base driver class. This
+method is to be used with provider drivers which support multiple regions and
+&lt;/code&gt;&lt;code&gt;region&lt;/code&gt;` constructor argument. It allows users to enumerate available /
+supported regions.

+  
+  <span class="post-date-author">By Anthony Shaw on Apr 11, 2016</span>
+
+  <div class="post-content">
+    <p>We are pleased to announce the release of Libcloud 1.0.0-rc2.</p>
+
+<p>This the second pre-release in the 1.0.0 series which means it brings many new
+features, improvements, bug-fixes, and DNS drivers.</p>
+
+<h3>Release highlights</h3>
+
+<p>This includes:</p>
+
+<ul>
+<li>Deprecated drivers that were no longer available such as Ninefold, IBM SCE <a href="http://libcloud.apache.org/blog/2016/02/16/new-drivers-deprecated-drivers.html">more details</a></li>
+<li>The Amazon EC2 driver has been changed to use</li>
+<li>Introduce new <code>list_regions</code>` class method on the base driver class</li>
+<li>Support for Dimension Data backup</li>
+<li>Added NSOne, LuaDNS, NearlyFreeSpeech.NET DNS drivers</li>
+<li>Added Aliyun compute, load balancer and storage drivers</li>
+<li>Added Outscale storage driver</li>
+</ul>
+
+<p>Full change log can be found at <a href="https://libcloud.readthedocs.org/en/latest/changelog.html">here</a>.</p>
+
+<h3>Important breaking change-  Amazon EC2 driver changes</h3>
+
+<p>The Amazon EC2 API was updated to consolidate the regional-based drivers into a single driver with a region argument in the constructor.</p>
+
+<p>Amazon Instances should now be instantiated using the following syntax:</p>
+
+<div class="highlight"><pre><code class="python language-python" data-lang="python"><span class="kn">from</span> <span class="nn">libcloud.compute.types</span> <span class="kn">import</span> <span class="n">Provider</span>
+<span class="kn">from</span> <span class="nn">libcloud.compute.providers</span> <span class="kn">import</span> <span class="n">get_driver</span>
+
+<span class="n">cls</span> <span class="o">=</span> <span class="n">get_driver</span><span class="p">(</span><span class="n">Provider</span><span class="o">.</span><span class="n">EC2</span><span class="p">,</span> <span class="n">region</span><span class="o">=</span><span class="s">&#39;us-east-i1&#39;</span><span class="p">)</span>
+<span class="n">driver</span> <span class="o">=</span> <span class="n">cls</span><span class="p">(</span><span class="s">&#39;access key&#39;</span><span class="p">,</span> <span class="s">&#39;secret key&#39;</span><span class="p">)</span>
+</code></pre></div>
+
+<p>This brings the Amazon API inline with the other drivers, makes it easier to maintain and switch between regions.</p>
+
+<h3>Bug fixes</h3>
+
+<h4>General</h4>
+
+<ul>
+<li><p>Fix a bug with consuming stdout and stderr in the paramiko SSH client which
+would manifest itself under very rare condition when a consumed chunk only
+contained a single byte or part of a multi byte UTF-8 character.
+[Lakshmi Kannan, Tomaz Muraus]</p></li>
+<li><p>Increase default chunk size from <code>1024</code> to <code>4096</code> bytes in the paramiko
+SSH client. This results in smaller number of receive calls on the average.
+[Tomaz Muraus]</p></li>
+<li><p>Fix to Dimension Data API address for Middle-East and Africa
+(GITHUB-700)
+[Anthony Shaw]</p></li>
+<li><p>Addition of Dimension Data Australia federal government region to dimension data
+drivers.
+(GITHUB-700)
+[Anthony Shaw]</p></li>
+<li><p>Throw a more user-friendly exception on &quot;No address associated with hostname&quot;.
+(GITHUB-711, GITHUB-714, LIBCLOUD-803)
+[Tomaz Muraus, Scott Crunkleton]</p></li>
+<li><p>Remove deprecated provider constants with the region in the name and related
+driver classes (e.g. <code>EC2_US_EAST</code>, etc.).</p>
+
+<p>Those drivers have moved to single provider constant + <code>region</code> constructor
+argument model.
+[Tomaz Muraus]</p></li>
+<li><p>Introduce new <code>list_regions</code><code>class method on the base driver class. This
+method is to be used with provider drivers which support multiple regions and
+</code><code>region</code>` constructor argument. It allows users to enumerate available /
+supported regions.
+[Tomaz Muraus]</p></li>
+</ul>
+

-  <div class="post-content">
-    <p>We are pleased to announce that version 1.0-pre1 vote thread is open and the release is ready for community feedback.</p>
-
-<p>1.0-pre1 marks the first pre-release of the 1.0 major release. Some years ago, Tomaz Muraus spoke on the podcast <a href="https://twit.tv/shows/floss-weekly/episodes/181">FLOSS weekly</a>.
-Tomaz spoke about how much of a huge challenge porting the project to Python 3.x would be(!) as well as the 1.0 milestone.</p>
-
-<p>It is worth listening to the podcast to see how far things have come, we now average 2 pull-requests a day and have 156 contributors.</p>
-
-<p>As the project has matured over the last 5 years one of the most remarkable changes has been the adoption from the community and 
-continued support from our contributors adding new drivers, patching strange API issues and keeping the project alive.</p>
-
-<p>Anthony Shaw will be speaking on the FLOSS weekly podcast on February 2nd and discussing our community and the project, so 
-please tune in. </p>
-
-<p>The Cloud market as I&#39;m sure you&#39;re all aware of is thriving, the purpose of Libcloud was originally:</p>
-
-<ul>
-<li>To help prevent lock-in to a particular vendor</li>
-<li>To abstract the complexity of vendor APIs</li>
-<li>To give a simple way for deploying to and managing multiple cloud vendors</li>
-</ul>
-
-<p>Since that we have had (at the last count) 2,118,539 downloads. The project continues to grow in popularity with each new release.</p>
-
-<p>So with the 1.0 major release we would like to announce 2 new driver types, containers and backup.</p>
-
-<h2>History of our drivers</h2>
-
-<p>The compute (IaaS) API is what libcloud is best known for but there is a range of drivers available for many other capabilities.</p>
-
-<p>There is a presentation on the value of using Libcloud to avoid lock in <a href="http://www.slideshare.net/AnthonyShaw5/apache-libcloud-keeping-up-with-the-cloud-market-in-2016">on SlideShare</a></p>
-
-<p>This is a history of the different driver types in the libcloud project.</p>

-<h2>Introducing Backup Drivers</h2>
-
-<p>With 1.0-pre1 we have introduced a new driver type for backup, <code>libcloud.backup</code></p>
-
-<p>Backup API allows you to manage Backup as A Service and services such as EBS Snaps,
-GCE volume snap and dimension data backup.</p>
-
-<h3>Terminology</h3>
-
-<ul>
-<li><code>libcloud.backup.base.BackupTarget</code> - Represents a backup target, like a Virtual Machine, a folder or a database.</li>
-<li><code>libcloud.backup.base.BackupTargetRecoveryPoint</code> - Represents a copy of the data in the target, a recovery point can be
-recovered to a backup target. An inplace restore is where you recover to the same target and an out-of-place restore is where you
-recover to another target.</li>
-<li><code>libcloud.backup.base.BackupTargetJob</code> - Represents a backup job running on backup target.</li>
-</ul>
-
-<h2>Introducing Container-as-a-Service Drivers</h2>
-
-<p>The API is for Container-as-a-Service providers, these new types of cloud services offer container management and hosting as a service.
-The new services are already providing proprietary APIs, giving the need for a tool like Libcloud if you want to provision to any cloud provider.</p>
-
-<p>Google, Amazon and Joyent have all announced Container cloud services and Microsoft have launched a beta service also, so we are getting on the front foot with an
-abstraction API for people wishing to gain similar benefits to the compute, load balancer and storage APIs.</p>
-
-<p><a href="http://www.slideshare.net/AnthonyShaw5/introducing-container-asaservice-support-to-apache-libcloud">A presentation on this topic is available on SlideShare.</a></p>
-
-<p><strong>Isn&#39;t docker a standard?</strong>
-Well, yes and no.</p>
-
-<p>Docker has been the main technology adopted by these providers as the host system for the containers and also as the specification of the containers themselves.
-But, Docker is not a provisioning system, it is a virtualization host. Also there are alternatives, like CoreOS Rkt. </p>
-
-<h3>Container API design</h3>
-
-<p>Container-as-a-Service providers will implement the <code>ContainerDriver</code> class to provide functionality for :</p>
-
-<ul>
-<li>Listing deployed containers</li>
-<li>Starting, stopping and restarting containers (where supported)</li>
-<li>Destroying containers</li>
-<li>Creating/deploying containers</li>
-<li>Listing container images</li>
-<li>Installing container images (pulling an image from a local copy or remote repository)</li>
-</ul>
-
-<h3>Simple Container Support</h3>
-
-<ul>
-<li><code>libcloud.container.base.ContainerImage</code> - Represents an image that can be deployed, like an application or an operating system</li>
-<li><code>libcloud.container.base.Container</code> - Represents a deployed container image running on a container host</li>
-</ul>
-
-<h3>Cluster Suppport</h3>
-
-<p>Cluster support extends on the basic driver functions, but where drivers implement the class-level attribute <code>supports_clusters</code> as True
-clusters may be listed, created and destroyed. When containers are deployed, the target cluster can be specified.</p>
-
-<ul>
-<li><code>libcloud.container.base.ContainerCluster</code> - Represents a deployed container image running on a container host</li>
-<li><code>libcloud.container.base.ClusterLocation</code> - Represents a location for clusters to be deployed</li>
-</ul>
-
-<h3>Using the container drivers</h3>
-
-<p>The container drivers have been designed around similar principles to the compute driver. It is simple to use and a flat class design. </p>

-<h3>Container Registries</h3>
-
-<p>The Docker Registry API is used by services like Amazon ECR, the Docker Hub website and by anyone hosting their own Docker registry.
-It doesn&#39;t belong to a particular driver, so is a utility class. 
-Some providers, like Amazon ECR have a factory method to provide a registry client
-Images from docker registry can be sent to the deploy_container method for any driver.</p>
-
-<div class="highlight"><pre><code class="python language-python" data-lang="python"><span class="kn">from</span> <span class="nn">libcloud.container.utils.docker</span> <span class="kn">import</span> <span class="n">HubClient</span>

-</code></pre></div>
-
-<p>When other container registry services are made available these can be provided in a similar context.</p>
-
-<h3>Prototype drivers in libcloud.container</h3>
-
-<p>Drivers have been provided to show example implementations of the API, these drivers are <strong>experimental</strong> and need to go through more thorough community testing
-before they are ready for a stable release.</p>
-
-<ul>
-<li><a href="http://libcloud.readthedocs.org/en/latest/container/drivers/docker.html">Docker</a></li>
-<li><a href="http://libcloud.readthedocs.org/en/latest/container/drivers/joyent.html">Joyent Triton</a></li>
-<li><a href="http://libcloud.readthedocs.org/en/latest/container/drivers/kubernetes.html">Google Kubernetes</a> </li>
-<li><a href="http://libcloud.readthedocs.org/en/latest/container/drivers/ecs.html">Amazon Elastic Container Service (as well as Amazon Container Registry Service)</a></li>
-</ul>
-
-<p>The driver with the most contentious implementation is Kubernetes. We would like users of the Amazon ECS, Google Containers and Kubernetes project to provide feedback
-on how they would like to map clusters, pods, namespaces to the low level concepts in the driver.</p>
