New committer Hutson Betts joins our team

Hi all,

I just wanted to let everyone know that the Libcloud PMC has decided to invite a new committer - Hutson Betts (hbetts).

He has previously mostly contributed to the OpenNebula driver and the networking API.

We believe that granting him the committer status will allow him to more easily and directly contribute to the project.

Please help us welcome him!

Libcloud 0.6.2 released

Libcloud team is pleased to announce the release of Libcloud 0.6.2!

This is primary a bug-fix release and includes the following bug-fixes:

  • Fix the PollingConnection class and actually use the poll_interval class variable (previously it was ignored). This bug-fix affects Rackspace Cloud DNS driver, CloudStack and Ninefold compute driver.
  • Fix a bug in the Rackspace Cloud DNS driver exception handling and throw an Exception if an unexpected status code is returned.

Besides the bug-fixes it also includes some new features:

  • Support for Amazon's new location (Oregon)
  • Expose CloudStack provider. This way it can be used with an arbitrary CloudStack installation and not just with the provider drivers which sub-class it (e.g. Ninefold.com driver).
