Hi Folks!

The Ubuntu Server Team is pleased to announce the general availability
of the first development milestone of the OpenStack Kilo release in
Ubuntu 15.04 development and for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS via the Ubuntu Cloud

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

For now, you can enable the Ubuntu Cloud Archive for OpenStack Kilo on
Ubuntu 14.04 installations by running the following commands:

  echo "deb http://ubuntu-cloud.archive.canonical.com/ubuntu
trusty-updates/kilo main" \
      | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cloud-archive.list
  sudo apt-get -y install ubuntu-cloud-keyring
  sudo apt-get update

The Ubuntu Cloud Archive for Kilo includes updates for Nova, Glance,
Keystone, Neutron, Cinder, Horizon, Swift, Ceilometer and Heat; Ceph
(0.87), RabbitMQ (3.4.2), QEMU (2.1), libvirt (1.2.8) and Open vSwitch
(2.3.1) back-ports from 15.04 development have also been provided.

Ubuntu 15.04 development

No extra steps required; just start installing OpenStack!  Keystone is
still pending update due to review of new dependencies by the Ubuntu
MIR team, but that should happen in the next few weeks.

New OpenStack components

This cycle we’ve also provided packages for Trove, Sahara and Ironic –
these projects are part of the integrated OpenStack release but remain
in Ubuntu universe for this development cycle, which means they won’t
get point release updates or security updates as part of ongoing
stable release maintenance once Ubuntu 15.04 and the Kilo Cloud
Archive for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS release.

NOTE: that if you use the Neutron FWaaS driver, you will need to
install the ‘python-neutron-fwaas’ package to continue using this
functionality; we will improve this situation in the packaging prior
to final release.

Reporting bugs

Let’s face it, as the first development milestone there are bound to
be a few bugs so please use the ‘ubuntu-bug’ tool to report any bugs
that you find – for example:

  sudo ubuntu-bug nova-conductor

this will ensure that bugs get logged in the right place in Launchpad.

Thanks and have fun!
