Pike Series Release Notes


New Features

  • Heat has additional configuration option for plugin_dirs parameter. This parameter provides a list of directories to search for plug-ins. This change allows configuration of plugin_dirs parameter in heat.conf file.

  • Add openstack-db tag to Exec that run db-sync.


Deprecation Notes

  • heat::rpc_backend is deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Please use heat::default_transport_url instead.

Other Notes

  • Change rabbit_heartbeat_timeout_threshold param from 0 (disable the heartbeat) and use default value from oslo module (unset param in configuration file).
