layout: post title: jclouds 1.2 released! author: Adrian Cole comments: true tumblr_url:

The 1.2 release of jclouds includes results of almost 2 months effort by our community. A total of 55 Issues were addressed between jclouds 1.1 and 1.2, stabilizing the cloud so you don't have to!

  • We now support 33 cloud providers and reach 8 new data centers from CloudSigma, Go2Cloud, and SoftLayer.
  • We've made sysadminy tasks more programmable, and feel more like Java. Using submitScriptOnNode, you can use java concurrent semantics for bash scripts!

{% highlight java %} future = client.submitScriptOnNode(node.getId(), AdminAccess.builder().adminUsername(“foo”).build(), nameTask(“adminUpdate”)); {% endhighlight %}

As always, we keep our examples site up to date so you can see how to work this stuff. Next release will be in approximately 1-months time. Look out for progress including vCloud 1.5, Voxel, and VirtualBox.

For full details on the jclouds 1.2.1 release, check out our release notes.

Catch up with us on twitter, irc, the mailing-list, or IRL at one of the many upcoming events.

Great job, team!
