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 compatibility with Java 8


and newer Guava


versions, which vexes our users. 

After a fruitful discussion with the Karaf community, we decided to move jclouds-karaf and jclouds-cli projects under to the Karaf project governance, (see this thread for more details). This has been removed a block blocker for new release releases of jclouds, and we think it will help both communities later ongoing forward.

== Community ==

Outside the existing PMC and committers, we We had 12 contributors this quarter (- including several new ones ) and - in addition to the existing PMC and committers, and more activity on our issue tracker. Notably, there 's have been very good promising contributions from some new developers to help with technical debt, particularly to remove uses of the '' package as this an internal package that makes it impossible to use jclouds in an OSGi environment if upgrading to such with newer of versions of Gson.

There is a growing concern around time around the amount of time being 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, and general interest from the community itself, or the from 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.
