  • Full support for translation in AngularJS, along with simpler tooling. See this for more details.

Upgrade Notes

  • Django 1.8 is now supported, and Django 1.7 is our minimum supported version. See this for more details.

  • Database-backed sessions will likely not persist across upgrades due to a change in their structure. See this for more details.

  • Horizon no longer uses QUnit in testing, and it has been removed from our requirements. See this for more details.

  • Horizon now has multiple configuration options for the default web URL (WEBROOT), static file location (STATIC_ROOT) and static file URL (STATIC_URL) in its settings files.

  • Themes have moved location from openstack_dashboard/static/themes, to openstack_dashboard/themes. Paths may need to be updated accordingly. Furthermore, Horizon is aligning closer with Bootstrap markup, and themes should be built around this ideology; see the top bar and side navigation for details.

  • The deprecated OPENSTACK_QUANTUM_NETWORK configuration option has been removed. If you still use it, you need to replace it with OPENSTACK_NEUTRON_NETWORK.

  • There is now an OPENSTACK_NOVA_EXTENSIONS_BLACKLIST option in the settings, to disable selected extensions for performance reasons. See this for more details.

  • Trove and Sahara panels now reside in openstack_dashboard/contrib. This is to provide separation for reviews provided mostly by the service teams. In the future, these panels may become plugins rather than being kept in Horizon. See this for more details.

  • Horizon requires both a volume and volumev2 endpoint for Cinder, even if only using v2.

  • Many JavaScript files and most notably the base page template (horizon/templates/base.html) have moved from the framework portion of the repo (horizon) to the application side (openstack_dashboard) to better separate the framework from the application.
