-OpenNebula 3.6 features a new hotpluging ​mechanism for disk volumes that supports attaching either volatile volumes or existing images to a running VM. Also for OpenNebula 3.6 we have re-written from scratch the Quota and Accounting tools, so now they are included in the OpenNebula core to enhance their integration with the existing AuthZ & AuthN mechanisms and other related tools (e.g. Sunstone).

 OpenNebula 3.6 also features improvements in other systems, especially in Sunstone'​s interface with the redesign of several tabs as well as in the OpenNebula Zones where we got rid of the datamapper dependency to ease the packaging of OpenNebula. OpenNebula 3.6 also features improvements in other systems, especially in Sunstone'​s interface with the redesign of several tabs as well as in the OpenNebula Zones where we got rid of the datamapper dependency to ease the packaging of OpenNebula.
