I’m pleased to announce the general availability of OpenStack 2014.1 (Icehouse) in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and in the Ubuntu Cloud Archive (UCA) for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Users of Ubuntu 14.04 need take no further action other than follow their favourite install guide – but do take some time to checkout the release notes for Ubuntu 14.04.
Ubuntu 12.04 users can enable the Icehouse pocket of the UCA by running:
sudo add-apt-repository cloud-archive:icehouse
The Icehouse pocket of the UCA also includes updates for associated packages including Ceph 0.79 (which will be updated to the Ceph 0.80 Firefly stable release), Open vSwitch 2.0.1, qemu 2.0.0 and libvirt 1.2.2 – you can checkout the full list here.
Thanks goes to all of the people who have contributed to making OpenStack rock this release cycle – both upstream and in Ubuntu!
Remember that you can report bugs on packages from the UCA for Ubuntu 12.04 and from Ubuntu 14.04 using the ubuntu-bug tool – for example:
will report the bug in the right place on launchpad and add some basic information about your installation.
The Juju charms for OpenStack have also been updated to support deployment of OpenStack Icehouse on Ubuntu 14.04 and Ubuntu 12.04. Read the charm release notes for more details on the new features that have been enabled during this development cycle.
Canonical have a more concise install guide in the pipeline for deploying OpenStack using Juju and MAAS – watch this space for more information…
