Hey Ying,

You can get the Glance Pyhton Client to use Glance v2 API using:
glance --os-image-api-version 2

But right now only limited functionality from Glance v2 API is accessible from Glance python client  ('explain', 'image-download', 'image-list', 'image-show', 'help').

Also, there is a blue print in progress for glance client to be able to talk to v2 glance api - https://blueprints.launchpad.net/python-glanceclient/+spec/glance-client-v2

I found the image APIs could not support non-ascii characters when using
Glance python client. This is because Glance python client is still using
the API v1 and Glance v1 API doesn't support non-ascii characters.

I want to understand if there is any plans to upgrade Glance python client
to use v2 API. Thanks.
