We're preparing the blueprints for the next stable release. Following
the tradition of naming OpenNebula releases after interstellar clouds
of dust, hydrogen, helium and plasma; OpenNebula 1.6 will be codenamed
Orion**. These are the main lines of development planed so far:

  * Image Repository [1], to keep a logical mapping between a high
level description of an image disk and its physical location and
configuration parameters. Also this will allow to set up ACLs for VM
  * Clustering/Grouping of Physical Hosts[2],  to tag (and hence
logical cluster) physical hosts without the need of defining new
monitor probes.
  * Authorization & Authentication framework [3], to interface
different auth frameworks (e.g. LDAP, Policykit, PAM...) and develop
custom user policies (e.g. quotas, user groups...)
  * Improve VMware driver [4], to level its functionality with the Xen
and KVM drivers.
A complete list of  features planned can be check in [5]

PLEASE send your suggestions for other new features or comments to the
current ones either through the mailing list or by filling an issue.
Your feedback is much appreciated!!!!

**The Orion Nebula  is a diffuse nebula situated south of Orion's
Belt. It is one of the brightest nebulae, and is visible to the naked
eye in the night sky. Orion was also memorably referenced by a dying
  "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire
off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near
the Tanhauser Gate..."
