The Apache CloudStack project released version 4.6 today, a major update for an already mature open source cloud building platform.

The project developers took a big step in changing the development process for CloudStack, increasing the agility of development by implementing a continuous delivery model that includes having a production-ready release branch ready at all times. They also made it easier to release new features faster without any regressions.

Here are some of the highlights of this release:

  • NuageVsp Network Plugin
  • Bind integration with Globo DNSAPI
  • SAML 2.0 Plugin
  • Managed storage for KVM
  • Improved CloudByte Storage Plugin
  • Use SSH for commands sent to Virtual-Router
  • Baremetal Advanced Networking Support
  • Instance Password Generation length can now be changed

A full list of the enhancements in 4.6 can be found here.
