Subject [ANN] Libcloud 0.6.0-beta1
Date Wed, 19 Oct 2011 11:55:07 GMT
Hello all,

Libcloud team is pleased to announce the release of Libcloud 0.6.0-beta1.

This release includes many improvements and new drivers, but the most
important thing is a brand new DNS API.

DNS API allows users to manage DNS service provided by many different
providers. This release includes a driver for Linode DNS (
http://www.linode.com/features.cfm) and Zerigo DNS (http://www.zerigo.com/).
In the future we also plan to expand it (hopefully with your help) and add
new drivers for providers such as Amazon, Rackspace and others.

DNS API is also the reason this is a beta and not a final release. We would
like it to get some more real world usage and testing before releasing a
final verison.

Other notable changes, bug-fixes and improvements

General

-  SSL certificate validation is now enabled by default. If no CA
certificate files are found on startup, an exception is thrown.

Compute

- new driver for Ninefold.com
- support for OpenStack 1.1 API and many other improvements in the OpenStack
driver

Storage

- new driver for Google storage (http://code.google.com/apis/storage/)
- new driver for Ninefold.com storage (http://ninefold.com/cloud-storage/)
