We are proud to announce the release of Fuel 7.0, deployment and
management tool for OpenStack.

This release introduces support for OpenStack 2015.1.0 (Kilo) and
continues to improve Fuel's pluggability and flexibility:

- Fuel plugins now can reserve their own VIP addresses, define their own
  node roles, extract granular deployment tasks from controllers to
  dedicated nodes. Plugin versioning system makes it easy to publish and
  apply maintenance updates to plugins.

- Networking templates allow you to redefine the set of network roles
  that can be assigned to node NICs, and, combined with node groups
  improvements, greatly expand the range of possible network topologies.

In addition to that, dozens of new features and deployment options were 
added, ranging from Neutron DVR and VXLAN, to customizing node hostnames
and assigning node labels, to more flexible bonding and NIC offloading
settings, just to name a few. Hundreds of bugs were fixed (1565 to be
precise), ranging from scalability and HA issues to user experience
