We are pleased to announce a long awaited Libcloud 0.14.0 release.

This is a first release in the 0.14 series which means it brings many (and I mean many!) new features, changes and improvements.

Release highlights

  • To make working with providers which support multiple regions easier and more user-friendly, some of the drivers have moved away from the "one class per region" to a single class plus "region" argument model. Those drivers include: EC2, Rackspace, ElasticHosts, Joyent, CloudFiles.
  • Addition of a programmatic way of updating the pricing file and ability to use a custom pricing file. For more information, please see https://libcloud.readthedocs.org/en/latest/compute/pricing.html#using-a-custom-pricing-file
  • Addition of block storage management methods to the following drivers: OpenNebula, OpenStack, EC2
  • Unification of the extension arguments for handling security groups in the EC2 and OpenStack driver
  • New standard compute API for SSH key-pair management
  • Many new features and improvements in the CloudStack driver
  • New compute and load balancer driver for Google Compute Engine (GCE)
  • Ability to export Libcloud's DNS zone to BIND zone format
  • and much more!
