libcloud is a client library for interacting with many of the popular cloud server providers. It was created to make it easy for developers to build products that work between any of the services that it supports.
libcloud was originally created by the folks over at Cloudkick, but has since grown into an independent free software project licensed under the Apache License (2.0).
The libcloud team can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Libcloud supports the following Python version:
- Python 2.5,
- Python 2.6,
- Python 2.7,
- Python 3 (since 0.7.1)
Support for Python 2.4 has been dropped in Libcloud 0.4.0. If you are still using Python 2.4 you need to use version prior to 0.4.0.
We don't follow a regular releases schedule as you might know it from other projects (Ubuntu, etc.).
Here are the guidelines we follow when scheduling and preparing a release:
- Normal (stable) release
We prepare a release as soon as enough changes accumulate in trunk.
- Bug fix release
It depends on the severity of a bug and how many users it affects. If it affects a lot of users or a big chunk of the code we try to prepare and get the release out as soon as possible.
- Security fix release
We prepare and get the release out as soon as possible.
