OpenNebula 5.6 RC ‘Blue Flash’ is Out!


(Tino Vazquez) #1

The OpenNebula project is proud to announce the availability of the RC release of OpenNebula 5.6 ‘Blue Flash’. Blue Flash is the fourth release of the OpenNebula 5 series.

A significant effort has been applied in this release to enhance features introduced in 5.4 Medusa, while keeping an eye in implementing those features more demanded by the community. A massive set of improvements happened at the core level to increase robustness and scalability, and a major refactor happened in the vCenter integration, particularly in the import process, which has been streamlined. Virtually every component of OpenNebula has been reviewed to target usability and functional improvements, trying to keep API changes to a minimum to avoid disrupting ecosystem components.

Check the blog post for more information on this new release.

OpenNebula, the fastest smurf alive!

Hi Tino,

The link for CentOS/RHEL7 on https://opennebula.org/software is pointing to 5.5.80-1, also looks like the packages are missing in the repos.

Cheers,
Anton

Hi Anton,

Thanks for the heads up!

We fixed the page link, and are looking into the repository issue.

Good catch,

-Tino

Where do I find the RPMS for OpenNebula 5.6? On the links here on the forum I can only see 5.5.90 which is not 5.6… So I’m a little confused… Any help?


(Tino Vazquez) #8

5.5.90 is the RC for 5.6.

5.6.0 hasn’t been published…yet! Stay tuned

Ok, great… Thanks!
