The OpenNebula project is proud to announce the immediate availability of OpenNebula 3.8 Twin Jet. This release brings new features in many areas and stabilizes previous versions: better integration with VMware (native support for VMFS) and KVM (support for cgroups and SPICE), simplified network deployment with the new virtual router appliance, or a more functional EC2 interface (EBS and keypairs). Check the release notes for a complete list of new features.
An important effort has been made to distribute the software with the same packaging formats as those used by the main Linux distributions. We hope that this will make even more easier to get and set OpenNebula up and running. Please be sure to check the upgrade guide, and take a look to the proper upgrade path from 3.6 packages.
Thanks to the community members and users who have contributed to this software release by being active with the discussions, answering user questions, or providing patches for bugfixes, features and documentation.
As usual OpenNebula releases are named after a Nebula. The Twin Jet (also known as Minkowski’s Butterfly, or the Wings of a Butterfly Nebula)is a planetary nebula, located about 2,100 light-years away from Earth in the direction of the constellation Ophiuchus.
