Hey, In the time since the Folsom release, we have been busy selectively back-porting bugfixes to the stable/folsom branch according to our "safe source of high-impact fixes" criteria documented here: http://wiki.openstack.org/StableBranch We're now announcing the 2012.2.2 release of Nova, a snap release containing a security fix and a fix for a serious regression in 2012.2.1. This release is a bugfix update to Folsom and is intended to be relatively risk free with no intentional regressions or API changes. The list of bugs fixed can be seen here: https://launchpad.net/nova/folsom/2012.2.2 Please read (and add to!) the release notes at: http://wiki.openstack.org/ReleaseNotes/2012.2.2 Enjoy! Mark.
