  • Development progress was a bit slow over the holidays and January but is picking up.
  • Work has been completed to improve support for cluster reservations which are distributed across different managment nodes.
  • Work continues to fix some minor issues.  We hope to create a release late spring or early summer which will include support for new features including provisioning on OpenStack, Windows 8.1 images, and nested hypervisor provisioning.
  • The community continues to work to attract development contributions and eventually additional committers. Contributions have recently been made from people in the community who have not contributed code before.
