A cloud agnostic library that enables developers to access a variety of cloud providers using one API.
== Project Status ==
jclouds continues to accumulate bug fixes but little feature work. Notably we are struggling with Java 8/newer Guava compatibility which vexes our users.
After a fruitful discussion with the Karaf community, we decided to move jclouds-karaf and jclouds-cli projects under Karaf project governance, see thread for more details. This has been a block for new release of jclouds and we think it will help both communities later on.
== Community ==TODO
Outside the existing PMC and committers, we had 12 contributors this quarter (including several new ones) and more activity on our issue tracker. Notably, there's been very good contributions from some new developers to help with technical debt, particularly to remove uses of the 'com.google.gson.internal' package as this makes it impossible to use jclouds in an OSGi environment if upgrading to such versions of Gson. There is a growing concern around time dedicated to the project, since most of the PMC and committers are now "pure" volunteers (with $dayjob no longer related to jclouds). Another concern is the lack of traction, requests, interest from the community itself or the downstream projects (like Apache Brooklyn)

== Community Objectives ==
- Unblock the release of jclouds 2.2.0, which will provide Java 8 support.
- Keep engaging contributors on Slack, and propose them as new committers as appropriate.
- Monitor the PMC and ensure we have enough resources to properly manage the project.
== Releases ==
The last jclouds release, 2.1.2, took place on 2019-02-07.
