Subject Announcing Apache™ CloudMonkey™ v5.2.0
Date Thu, 28 Aug 2014 13:47:50 GMT
28 August 2014 —Apache CloudStack, the mature, turnkey Open Source cloud computing software
platform used for creating private, public, and hybrid cloud environments, today announced
Apache CloudMonkey v5.2.0, the latest feature release of its command line interface tool.

CloudMonkey is written in Python, and can be used both as an interactive shell and as a command
line tool that simplifies CloudStack configuration and management.

Apache CloudMonkey v5.2.0 is the latest feature release of the 5.x line that was first released
in September 2013. Some of the new features and changes include:

• Multiple server profiles where users can use CloudMonkey against different CloudStack
management servers and switch between them using a profile option;
• A default profile under the section [local] is added with default values;
• Some bugfixes related to network requests, error handling, JSON decoding and shell interactivity;
• Every time 'set' is called, CloudMonkey will write the config and reload config file;
• Configuration options 'protocol', 'host', 'port', 'path' are deprecated now but setting
them is still allowed which sets a single "url" option, in the config file the [server] section
is deprecated now and CloudMonkey won’t read values from this section anymore but instead
read from current server profile;
• Missing key/values are automatically set with defaults by CloudMonkey;
• During installation and upgrades, it will detect the platform to install either pyreadline
(Windows) or readline (OSX and Linux);
