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. driver).
