*RDO Wallaby Released*

The RDO community is pleased to announce the general availability of the
RDO build for OpenStack Wallaby for RPM-based distributions, CentOS Stream
and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. RDO is suitable for building private, public,
and hybrid clouds. Wallaby is the 23rd release from the OpenStack project,
which is the work of more than 1,000 contributors from around the world.

The release is already available on the CentOS mirror network at

The RDO community project curates, packages, builds, tests and maintains a
complete OpenStack component set for RHEL and CentOS Stream and is a member
of the CentOS Cloud Infrastructure SIG. The Cloud Infrastructure SIG
focuses on delivering a great user experience for CentOS users looking to
build and maintain their own on-premise, public or hybrid clouds.

All work on RDO and on the downstream release, Red Hat OpenStack Platform,
is 100% open source, with all code changes going upstream first.

PLEASE NOTE: RDO Wallaby provides packages for CentOS Stream 8 and Python 3
only. Please use the Victoria release for CentOS8.  For CentOS7 and python
2.7, please use the Train release.

*Interesting things in the Wallaby release include:*

   - RBAC supported added in multiple projects including Designate, Glance,
   Horizon, Ironic, and Octavia

   - Glance added support for distributed image import

   - Ironic added deployment and cleaning enhancements including UEFI
   Partition Image handling, NVMe Secure Erase, per-instance deployment driver
   interface overrides, deploy time “deploy_steps”, and file injection.

   - Kuryr added nested mode with node VMs running in multiple subnets is
   now available. To use that functionality a new option
   [pod_vif_nested]worker_nodes_subnets is introduced accepting multiple
   Subnet IDs.

   - Manila added the ability for Operators to now set maximum and minimum
   share sizes as extra specifications on share types.

   - Neutron added a new subnet type network:routed is now available. IPs
   of this subnet type can be advertised with BGP over a provider network.

   - TripleO moved network and network port creation out of the Heat stack
   and into the baremetal provisioning workflow.

*The Next Release Cycle*
At the end of one release, focus shifts immediately to the next release i.e

*Get Started*
There are three ways to get started with RDO.

To spin up a proof of concept cloud, quickly, and on limited hardware, try
an All-In-One Packstack installation. You can run RDO on a single node to
get a feel for how it works.

For a production deployment of RDO, use TripleO and you’ll be running a
production cloud in short order.

Finally, for those that don’t have any hardware or physical resources,
there’s the OpenStack Global Passport Program. This is a collaborative
effort between OpenStack public cloud providers to let you experience the
freedom, performance and interoperability of open source infrastructure.
You can quickly and easily gain access to OpenStack infrastructure via
trial programs from participating OpenStack public cloud providers around
the world.

*Get Help*
The RDO Project has our users at lists.rdoproject.org for RDO-specific users
and operators. For more developer-oriented content we recommend joining the
dev at lists.rdoproject.org mailing list. Remember to post a brief
introduction about yourself and your RDO story. The mailing lists archives
are all available at https://mail.rdoproject.org. You can also find
extensive documentation on RDOproject.org.

The #rdo channel on Freenode IRC is also an excellent place to find and
give help.

We also welcome comments and requests on the CentOS devel mailing list and
the CentOS and TripleO IRC channels (#centos, #centos-devel, and #tripleo
on irc.freenode.net), however we have a more focused audience within the
RDO venues.

*Get Involved*
To get involved in the OpenStack RPM packaging effort, check out the RDO
contribute pages, peruse the CentOS Cloud SIG page, and inhale the RDO
packaging documentation.

Join us in #rdo and #tripleo on the Freenode IRC network and follow us on
Twitter @RDOCommunity. You can also find us on Facebook and YouTube.
