Status and Plans for Next Release

Daniel Veillard recapped[1] the release plans. A "feature freeze on the 22nd" and a "target for next release is Friday 29th".

Work will continue on "reviewing and adding OpenNebula[2]/Power[3] drivers and try to get the NPIV[4], netcf[5] and secure migration patches in. It's likely not everything will make the release cut but we can try !"

Pritesh Kothari contributed patches improving the VirtualBox[1] driver submitted[2] just last month.

  • "support for vrdp/sdl/gui"[3]
  • "support for "Host only" and "Internal" networks"[4]
