In the summer of 2012 Citrix donated the CloudStack code to the Apache foundation. Since this transition to an Apache project a lot has changed. What's new and what can be expected?


The release of CloudStack 4.0 brought a couple of new features, but mainly it is also the first Apache release. The new (growing) community has to adapt to the new situation and work as an Apache project.

Never the less, 4.0 ships with new features like Nicira integration for network and RBD distributed storage for KVM.

CloudStack 4.0 is the first release under Apache and more will follow. What's in the pipeline and what to expect?
