The OpenNebula team is happy to announce the second beta release of
OpenNebula 1.4. This Beta 2 is aimed at testers, community members and
cloud enthusiasts in order to identify bugs and regressions, so that
1.4 can fully replace OpenNebula 1.2 deployments.

After nearly three months has passed since the feature freeze for
OpenNebula 1.4, the OpenNebula team has been working hard on polishing
the new features, and solving bugs. While there could be some issues
that need to be fixed before the stable release, OpenNebula 1.4 beta 2
shapes up nicely and brings an important number of improvements and
innovations in Cloud computing.

Highlights of OpenNebula 1.4 are...

  * EC2 Query API interface for building OpenNebula-based clouds
  * OCCI interface for building OpenNebula-based clouds
  * Support for the VMware Hypervisor family
  * Multiple user support and access-right control for Virtual
Machines and Virtual Networks
  * Advance contextualization support to integrate VM packs and
implement multi-component services
  * Easy integration with your data-center services and procedures
with a new hook system
  * Support block devices as VM images.
  * Many bug fixes, and scalability and performance improvements in
several components of the OpenNebula system
  * A whole new set of documentation pages, guides and examples

The OpenNebula Team!
