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 happy to announce the 2012.2.1 release, the first in the series of releases to make available the bugfixes from stable/folsom. These releases are bugfix updates to Folsom and are intended to be relatively risk free with no intentional regressions or API changes. A total of 139 bugs have been fixed in this release, which is a higher than the usual volume of fixes in a stable release. The list of bugs fixed can be seen here: https://launchpad.net/nova/folsom/2012.2.1 https://launchpad.net/glance/folsom/2012.2.1 https://launchpad.net/keystone/folsom/2012.2.1 https://launchpad.net/cinder/folsom/2012.2.1 https://launchpad.net/quantum/folsom/2012.2.1 https://launchpad.net/horizon/folsom/2012.2.1 Please read (and add to!) the release notes at: http://wiki.openstack.org/ReleaseNotes/2012.2.1 Enjoy!
