Hello all,

I would like to announce Libcloud 0.5.2. This release primary fixes two bugs which were introduced in Libcloud 0.5.0 and improves listing of the objects in the containers which contain more objects that fit into a single response.

Notable changes, bug-fixes and improvements


  • Fix a regression in the deploy_node() method and make it more robust
  • Fix a regression in the Nimbus driver create_node() method
  • Improved node name and tag handling in the Amazon EC2 driver
  • Improved pricing and response handling in the OpenStack driver
  • New driver for SkaliCloud (skalicloud.com)
  • New driver for ServerLove (serverlove.com)


  • Fix handling of the containers with a lot of objects. Now an iterator object is returned when user calls list_container_objects() method and this object transparently handles pagination.

For a full list of changes, please check the CHANGES file < https://github.com/apache/libcloud/blob/0.5.2/CHANGES>.
