Victoria Series Release Notes


Upgrade Notes

  • The glance::api class now supports a lock_path parameter that configures the oslo.concurrency lock_path with a platform specific default value. Distributions that are used to defining the lock_path with a distribution specific config file may need to override the default glance::api::lock_path value.

Bug Fixes

  • Bug #1980539: Configure the oslo.concurrency lock_path, which is now required by cinder backends.


New Features

  • The new glance::api::authtoken::service_type parameter has been added to configure the service_type parameter in authtoken middleware.


New Features

  • A new parameter cinder_mount_point_base is introduced into glance::backend::multistore::cinder class, so that operators can provide the cinder mount point for NFS volumes.

Bug Fixes

  • The swift::backend::multistore::swift::swift_store_config_file is now set to /etc/glance/glance-swift.conf by default. Because of this change the parameter is automatically set to use the configuration file generated by puppet-glance.
