OpenNebula Newsletter – December 2011

Here’s our monthly newsletter with the main news from the last month, including what you can expect in the coming months.

Technology

We announced a new rapid release development cycle that will allow us to more quickly deliver new features and innovations to the community as well as incorporate requirements of our users and feedback from the community. Shortly afterwards, we announced the first pre-release of OpenNebula 3.2, with OpenNebula 3.2 Final scheduled for December 20th (the blue-prints for this release can be found at the development portal).

A few days ago, we celebrated OpenNebula’s fourth birthday! We took a look back at how the project has grown in the last four years.

C12G Labs released OpenNebula 3.0 Pro, and a new version of the VMWare addon. In fact, the VMWare addon, with extended features developed by C12G Labs, will now be included with OpenNebula, starting with version 3.2.

Community
