Current Series Release Notes


New Features

  • The new nova::migration::libvirt::manage_service parameter has been added.

  • The nova::compute::libvirt::services class now installs the libvirt-damon package explicitly in CentOS and RHEL when modular libvirt daemons are not used. This is required in recent CentOS Stream 9 to use legacy libvirtd service and socket.

  • The new qemu_config resource type has been added. This resource type allows configuring options in /etc/libvirt/qemu.conf.

  • The new nova::compute::libvirt::config::qemu_config parameter has been added.

Upgrade Notes

  • The nova::compute::libvirt::modular_libvirt parameter has been removed.

  • The nova::api::instance_name_template parameter has been removed.

  • Puppet 6 is no longer supported.

  • The nova::upgrade_level_network parameter has been removed.

Bug Fixes

  • The nova::migration::libvirt class no longer reads the nova::compute::libvirt::manage_libvirt_services parameter to decide whether the class should/shouldn’t manage services. The new nova::migration::libvirt::manage_service parameter now controls that behavior.
