The Ubuntu OpenStack Engineering team is pleased to announce the general availability of the first release candidate 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
You can enable the Ubuntu Cloud Archive for OpenStack Kilo on Ubuntu 14.04 installations by running the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository cloud-archive:kilo sudo apt-get update
The Ubuntu Cloud Archive for Kilo includes updates for Nova, Glance, Keystone, Neutron, Cinder, Horizon, Ceilometer and Heat; Ceph (0.94.1), RabbitMQ (3.4.2), QEMU (2.2), libvirt (1.2.12) and Open vSwitch (2.3.1) back-ports from 15.04 development have also been provided.
Note that for Swift we’re still at version 2.2.2 – we’re currently reviewing whether to include 2.3.0 for release.
Ubuntu 15.04 development
No extra steps required; just start installing OpenStack!
New OpenStack components
In addition to Trove, Sahara and Ironic we have now added Designate and Manila to the Ubuntu universe pocket.
Neutron Driver Decomposition
As of Kilo RC1, Ubuntu are only tracking the decomposition of Neutron FWaaS, LBaaS and VPNaaS from Neutron core in the Ubuntu archive; we expect to add additional packages for other Neutron ML2 mechanism drivers and plugins early during the Liberty/15.10 development cycle – we’ll provide these as backports to OpenStack Kilo users as and when they become available.
OpenStack Kilo Release
We have the slightly exciting situation this cycle in that OpenStack Kilo releases a week after Ubuntu 15.04; The Ubuntu OpenStack Engineering team will be working on a stable update for all OpenStack projects as soon as OpenStack Kilo is released. I’d anticipate that these updates should be available around a week after the kilo release date.
Any issues please report bugs using the ‘ubuntu-bug’ tool:
sudo ubuntu-bug nova-conductor
this will ensure that bugs get logged in the right place in Launchpad.
Thanks and have fun!
