OpenNebula 3 SP1 (3.8.4) - Incremental Release Notes
June 18th, 2013. The OpenNebula Project announces the general availability of the first Service Pack for the OpenNebula 3 Series (3.8.4). After its first year, and for two additional years, the Project distributes a Service Pack (SP) for each major release that combines all the patches to easily install or deploy its last update. Service Packs allow users to maintain their current OpenNebula version as long as possible, preserving the stability and security of their data centers, as they transition from one OpenNebula Series to the next.
This is a maintenance release that fixes bugs reported by the community after 3.8.3 was released. This release only includes bug fixes and is a recommended update for everyone running any 3.x. Check out the OpenNebula 3.8 Twin-Jet release notes for the release highlights and a summary of the new features incorporated in OpenNebula 3.8.
Important bugs solved since 3.8.3 release include:
OpenNebula 3.8.4 is API compatible with OpenNebula 3.x, so you should expect that applications and drivers developed for 3.x work with this release.
Also there have been minor changes in the OpenNebula DB schema to accommodate big resource descriptions. These changes are automatically managed by the migration process, but if you have developed any customization you may need to update it.
A detailed upgrade process can be found in the documentation.
For a complete set of changes to migrate from a 3.x installation please refer to the Compatibility Guide. You should also read this document if you are an OpenNebula 3.x user.
