Today we have released Swift 1.9.1 (RC1).

The tarball for the RC is at

This release was initially prompted by a bug found by Peter Portante
(https://bugs.launchpad.net/swift/+bug/1196932) and includes a patch
for it. All clusters are recommended to upgrade to this new release.
As always, you can upgrade to this version of Swift with no end-user

In addition to the patch mentioned above, this release contains a few
other important features:

* The default worker count has changed from 1 to auto. The new default
  value will for workers in the proxy, container, account & object
  wsgi servers will spawn as many workers per process as you have cpu

* A "reveal_sensitive_prefix" config parameter was added to the
  proxy_logging config. This value allows the auth token to be
  obscured in the logs.

* The Keystone middleware will now enforce that the reseller_prefix
  ends in an underscore. Previously, this was a recommendation, and
  now it is enforced.

There are several other changes in this release. I'd encourage you to
read the full changelog at

On the community side, this release includes the work of 7 new
contributors. They are:

Thanks to everyone for your hard work. I'm very happy with where Swift
is and where we are going together.
