I'm please to announce that OpenStack Swift 1.13 has been released.
This release has some important new features (highlighted below), and
it also serves as a good checkpoint before Swift's final release in
the Icehouse cycle.

Launchpad page for this release: https://launchpad.net/swift/icehouse/1.13.0

Highlights from the Swift 1.13 changelog

    * Account-level ACLs and ACL format v2

      Accounts now have a new privileged header to represent ACLs or
      any other form of account-level access control. The value of
      the header is a JSON dictionary string to be interpreted by the
      auth system. A reference implementation is given in TempAuth.
      Please see the full docs at

    * Moved all DLO functionality into middleware

      The proxy will automatically insert the dlo middleware at an
      appropriate place in the pipeline the same way it does with the
      gatekeeper middleware. Clusters will still support DLOs after upgrade
      even with an old config file that doesn't mention dlo at all.

    * Remove python-swiftclient dependency

Please read the full changelog for a full report of this release. As
always, this release is considered production-ready, and deployers can
upgrade to it with no client downtime in their cluster.

I'd like to thank the following new contributors to Swift, each of
whom contributed to the project for the first time during this

 - Luis de Bethencourt (luis at debethencourt.com)
 - Florent Flament (florent.flament-ext at cloudwatt.com)
 - David Moreau Simard (dmsimard at iweb.com)
 - Shane Wang (shane.wang at intel.com)

Thank you to everyone who has contributed.
