Notable updates

  • A workaround for JCLOUDS-427 is provided to make jclouds compatible with JRE 1.7.0_51-b13.
  • Added the DigitalOcean compute provider. It is available in labs under the following Maven coordinates: {% highlight xml %} org.apache.jclouds.labs digitalocean 1.7.1 {% endhighlight %}
  • Upgraded Bouncycastle to version 1.49.
  • Added an HTTP driver based on the OkHttp library for efficient HTTP connections.
  • Added support for PATCH methods that have a body.
  • Allow configuring of networks to which the nodes will be attached directly from the portable Compute interface.


  • jclouds 1.7.1 is incompatible with Guava 16. Please switch to Guava 15.0 or earlier, or wait for jclouds 1.8.


As per 1.6.1-incubating, the jclouds Maven group ID has changed from org.jclouds to org.apache.jclouds so a pom.xml dependency would now look like:

{% highlight xml %} org.apache.jclouds jclouds-all 1.7.1 {% endhighlight %}
