-OpenNebula 3.8 improves ​the integration with VMware and KVM (these ​are the most widely used hypervisors in OpenNebula clouds), and the support for heterogeneous infrastructures. Twin Jet features an improved storage VMware interface with native support for VMFS and integration with cgroups and SPICE on KVM deployments. This new version seamlessly integrates with the new Virtual Router in the OpenNebula marketplace to provide L3 services based on the OpenNebula virtual networks. ​+OpenNebula 3.8 enhances ​the integration with VMware and KVM, which are the most widely used hypervisors in OpenNebula clouds, and with heterogeneous infrastructures ​using different hypervisors.

 An important effort has been made to synchronize the packaging format used by the OpenNebula project and those used by the Linux distributions. We hope that this will make even more easier to get and set OpenNebula up and running. An important effort has been made to synchronize the packaging format used by the OpenNebula project and those used by the Linux distributions.

-This is an stable ​release ​that incorporates several bug fixes since 3.8 beta. It is a recommended update for any site. Note that we have new set of packages, so be sure to [[documentation:​rel3.8:​upgrade|take a look at the upgrade guide]] ​.+There are also other new features already implemented and ready but not merged with master. These features will be available in the final release ​of OpenNebula ​3.8. Note that this is beta release aimed at testers and developers ​to try the new features.
  
 As usual OpenNebula releases are named after a Nebula. The [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Planetary_Nebula_M2-9|Twin Jet Nebula]] (Minkowski 2-9, abbreviated M2-9 ) is a planetary nebula that was discovered by Rudolph Minkowski in 1947. It is located about 2,100 light-years away from Earth. As usual OpenNebula releases are named after a Nebula.

-  * **Improved VM life-cycle**,​ some VM transitions has been tuned to prevent from loosing VM states when a infrastructure related failure occurs. Now when a suspended/​stopped/​unknown VM fails to restart/​resume it returns to its original state instead to retry the operation o manually delete the VM. 
-  ​ 
   * **Enhanced VMware support** through a new set of [[documentation:​rel3.8:​vmware_ds | Datastore and Transfer Manager (TM) drivers]]. These new drivers enable the implementation of multiple ​ storage solutions and brings native support for VMFS.   * **Enhanced VMware support** through a new set of [[documentation:​rel3.8:​vmware_ds | Datastore and Transfer Manager (TM) drivers]].

-====== Supported Platform Components ====== ​ 
- 
-Because OpenNebula is inherently portable to different operating systems and virtualization platforms, most Linux distributions and Hypervisors are supported. However, not all platform configurations and combinations exhibit a similar functionality,​ performance and stability. You can contact us if you need advise about the best platform configurations and environments for functionality and performance. Please read our [[http://​opennebula.org/​software:​testing|Certification Policy]] for more information.
