apache-libcloud v2.8.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2020-01-02 // about 3 years ago
  • Common

    - ๐Ÿ›  Fix a regression with ``get_driver()`` method not working if ``provider``
      argument value was a string (e.g. using ``get_driver('openstack')``
      instead of ``get_driver(Provider.OPENSTACK)``).
      Only officially supported and recommended approach still is to use
      ``Provider.FOO`` enum type constant, but since the string notation was
      unofficially supported in the past, we will still support it until the next
      major release.
      Reported by @dpeschman.

    - ๐Ÿšฆ Include ``py.typed`` data file to signal that this package contains type
      annotations / hints.
      NOTE: At the moment, type annotations are only available for the base
      compute API.

    - ๐Ÿ›  Fix universal wheel METADATA and ensure conditional dependencies
      (backports.ssl_match_hostname, typing, enum34) are handled correctly.

    • [DigitalOcean] Fix attach_volume and detach_volume methods. Previously those two methods incorrectly passed volume id instead of volume name to the API. (GITHUB-1380) [@mpempekos]

    • [GCE] Add ex_disk_size argument to the create_node method. (GITHUB-1386, GITHUB-1388) [Peter Yu - @yukw777]

    • ๐Ÿ›  [VMware vCloud] Various improvements, fixes and additions to the driver. (GITHUB-1373) [OpenText Corporation]

    • ๐Ÿš€ Update deploy_node() method so it now only passes non-deploy node keyword arguments + auth argument to the underlying create_node() method. Previously it also passed deploy_node() specific arguments such as deploy, ssh_username, max_tries, etc. to it.

    Because of that, a lot of the compute drivers which support deploy functionality needed to use **kwargs in create_node() method signature which made code hard to read and error prone.

    Also update various affected drivers to explicitly declare supported arguments in the create_node() method signature (Dummy, Abiquo, Joyent, Bluebox, OpenStack, Gandy, VCL, vCloud, CloudStack, GoGrid HostVirtual, CloudSigma, ElasticStack, RimuHosting, SoftLayer, Voxel, Vpsnet, KTUcloud, BrightBox, ECP, OpenNebula, UPcloud).

    As part of this change, also various issues with invalid argument names were identified and fixed. (GITHUB-1389) [Tomaz Muraus]

    • ๐Ÿš€ Add MyPy type annotations for create_node() and deploy_node() method. (GITHUB-1389) [Tomaz Muraus]

    • ๐Ÿš€ [GCE] Update deploy_node() method so it complies with the base compute API and accepts deploy argument.

    This method now also takes all the same keyword arguments which original create_node() takes. (GITHUB-1387) [Peter Yu - @yukw777, Tomaz Muraus]

    • [Common] To make debugging and troubleshooting easier, add __repr__ and __str__ method to the ScriptDeployment class. [Tomaz Muraus]

    • [Common] Add type annotations / hints for rest of the base compute API classes and methods. [Tomaz Muraus]


    - [AWS S3] Make sure ``host`` driver constructor argument has priority
      over ``region`` argument.
      This means if you specify ``host`` and ``region`` argument, host won't be
      inferred from the region, but ``host`` argument will be used for the actual
      connection host value.
