Current Series Release Notes


Upgrade Notes

  • Added support for microversion 2.68, which removes the --force option from the nova evacuate, nova live-migration, nova host-evacuate and nova host-evacuate-live commands.


Upgrade Notes

  • All modules of novaclient.v2.contrib have been removed.
  • The only_contrib parameter for the novaclient.client.discover_extensions method is no longer valid.

Deprecation Notes

  • The --instance-name option has been deprecated from the nova list command because the instance name query parameter is ignored by the compute REST API.


New Features

  • Added support for microversion 2.66 which adds changes-before parameter to the servers, os-instance-actions or os-migrations APIs.
    • This parameter (changes-before) does not change any read-deleted behavior in the os-instance-actions or os-migrations APIs.
    • Like the changes-since filter, the changes-before filter will also return deleted servers.
    • The --changes-before options is added to the nova list, nova instance-action-list and nova migration-list CLIs.
  • Support is added for the 2.67 microversion which allows specifying a volume_type with the --block-device option on the nova boot command. The novaclient.v2.servers.ServerManager.create() method now also supports a volume_type entry in the block_device_mapping_v2 parameter.

Bug Fixes

  • The user data argument in the nova rebuild command was passing the filename as userdata. Now this passes the contents of the file as intended.
