As expected, we have been working hard to finish 2017 stronger than ever. Below you will find a brief recap on the work done this month to keep OpenNebula ready.
The amazing response from our community to the call for TechDay hosts published last month is just another sign that things are going great around OpenNebula and we appreciate the effort. The schedule of events for 2018 will be published within the first weeks of January. Now we are focussing on keeping everything prepared for the upcoming year, which seems to be full of new and amazing challenges.
Improvements on Sunstone and the EC2 drivers were introduced this month. These came along with our two latests hotfix releases: OpenNebula 5.4.4 and 5.4.5.
An even faster Sunstone? Yes!
Our team managed to improve Sunstone’s load times so you can focus on your cloud administration. Some other suggestions have been implemented such us the request to make changes on the settings page and increase the disk size with the beautiful Sunstone slider. For the EC2 drivers some issues related with custom userdata have been solved successfully, also we made it possible to add EC2 target hosts through Sunstone.
But this is just a little summary, you can check other changes and enhancements on the following links:
We never give up! Even though migrating from Redmine to Github was a very tedious job, we managed to label all the issues correctly and in a cleaner way.
