The Ubuntu Server Team is pleased to announce the general availability of the first development milestone of the OpenStack Kilo release in Ubuntu 15.04 development and for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS via the Ubuntu Cloud Archive.
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
For now, you can enable the Ubuntu Cloud Archive for OpenStack Kilo on Ubuntu 14.04 installations by running the following commands:
echo "deb http://ubuntu-cloud.archive.canonical.com/ubuntu trusty-updates/kilo main" \ | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cloud-archive.list sudo apt-get -y install ubuntu-cloud-keyring sudo apt-get update
The Ubuntu Cloud Archive for Kilo includes updates for Nova, Glance, Keystone, Neutron, Cinder, Horizon, Swift, Ceilometer and Heat; Ceph (0.87), RabbitMQ (3.4.2), QEMU (2.1), libvirt (1.2.8) and Open vSwitch (2.3.1) back-ports from 15.04 development have also been provided.
Ubuntu 15.04 development
No extra steps required; just start installing OpenStack! Keystone is still pending update due to review of new dependencies by the Ubuntu MIR team, but that should happen in the next few weeks.
New OpenStack components
This cycle we’ve also provided packages for Trove, Sahara and Ironic – these projects are part of the integrated OpenStack release but remain in Ubuntu universe for this development cycle, which means they won’t get point release updates or security updates as part of ongoing stable release maintenance once Ubuntu 15.04 and the Kilo Cloud Archive for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS release.
NOTE: that if you use the Neutron FWaaS driver, you will need to install the ‘python-neutron-fwaas’ package to continue using this functionality; we will improve this situation in the packaging prior to final release.
Let’s face it, as the first development milestone there are bound to be a few bugs so please use the ‘ubuntu-bug’ tool to report any bugs that you find – for example:
sudo ubuntu-bug nova-conductor
this will ensure that bugs get logged in the right place in Launchpad.
Thanks and have fun!
