We are pleased to announce the release of Libcloud 2.2.1!

This is a first patch release in the 2.2.x series and as such, it includes some bug fixes and improvements.

The most important one of them fixes an installation of Libcloud 2.2.0 failing on some operating-system and file-system combinations (e.g. ecryptfs layered on top of ext3/4) which don’t support file names longer than 143 characters.

In addition to that, it also includes performance improvement for the deploy functionality available to the compute drivers. Now the deploy scripts which produce a lot of output should finish a lot faster.

Full change log can be found at http://libcloud.readthedocs.io/en/latest/changelog.html#changes-in-apache-libcloud-2-2-1.
