> Today we are announcing the start of the deprecation cycle for
> neutron-lbaas and neutron-lbaas-dashboard. As part of the neutron
> stadium evolution [1], neutron-lbaas was identified as a project that
> should spin out of neutron and become its own project. The
> specification detailing this process was approved [2] during the
> newton OpenStack release cycle.
> OpenStack load balancing no longer requires deep access into the
> neutron code base and database. All of the required networking
> capabilities are now available via stable APIs. This change de-couples
> the load balancing release versioning from the rest of the OpenStack
> deployment. Since Octavia uses stable APIs when interacting with other
> OpenStack services, you can run a different version of Octavia in
> relation to your OpenStack cloud deployment.
> Per OpenStack deprecation policy, both projects will continue to
> receive support and bug fixes during the deprecation cycle, but no new
> features will be added to either project. All future feature
> enhancements will now occur on the Octavia project(s) [3].
> We are not announcing the end of the deprecation cycle at this time,
> but it will follow OpenStack policy of at least two release cycles
> prior to retirement. This means that the first release that these
> projects could be retired would be the “T” OpenStack release cycle.
