The OpenStack Charms team is happy to announce the 20.05 charms
release, introducing support for OpenStack Ussuri and Ceph Octopus on
Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. This release also brings
several new and valuable features to the existing OpenStack Charms
deployments for Queens, Rocky, Stein, Train, Ussuri and many other
stable combinations of Ubuntu + OpenStack.

Please see the Release Notes for full details:

== Highlights ==

* OpenStack Ussuri
OpenStack Ussuri is now supported on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (via UCA) and
Ubuntu 20.04 LTS natively.

* Ceph Octopus
The Octopus release of Ceph is now supported, starting with OpenStack Ussuri.

* New charms: MySQL 8
The MySQL 8 charms (mysql-innodb-cluster and mysql-router) have been
promoted to supported status. These charms allow for a completely
native cloud database HA cluster (no need for the hacluster charm).
The legacy solution (percona-cluster charm) is not supported on Ubuntu
20.04 LTS. Migration documentation is available.

* New charms: Masakari
The Masakari charms (masakari and masakari-monitors) and the requisite
pacemaker-remote charm have been promoted to supported status,
starting with OpenStack Stein. Masakari provides automated recovery of
OpenStack instances (shared storage required).

* New charms: OVN
The OVN charms (neutron-api-plugin-ovn, ovn-central, ovn-chassis, and
ovn-dedicated-chassis) have been promoted to supported status. OVN
provides virtual networking for Open vSwitch and is the preferred
default for new deployments of OpenStack Ussuri.

* Ceph iSCSI
Ceph iSCSI gateway functionality is available as a tech preview. These
gateways provide iSCSI targets backed by a Ceph cluster.

bugs, enabled support for a new release of OpenStack, improved
documentation, and added exciting new functionality!
