* This is the first release to support Debian Wheezy along with Squeeze. You
20

31
  required.

* Workaround race between server creation and server deletion. This will be
33
  fixed properly by updating Ganeti to support the 'depends' attribute for

143
Synnefo-wide
144
------------
145

    
146
* Create 'snf_django' Python package to hold common code for all Synnefo
147
  components.
148

    
149
* Create a JSON-exportable definition document for each Synnefo Components
150
  (Astakos, Cyclades, Pithos, etc.) that consolidates APIs (services),
151
  resources, and other standardized properties (e.g. default URL prefixes).
152

    
153
* Standardize URLs for Synnefo Components, impose structure and naming
154
  conventions to related settings. Make each component deployable under
155
  a user-configurable <COMPONENT>_BASE_URL. Each API (compute, image, etc.)
156
  is deployable under a developer-configurable prefix beneath BASE_URL.
157

    
158
* Deprecate CLOUDBAR_ACTIVE_SERVICE setting from all apps. 
159

    
160
* Common synnefo 404/500 templates (located in snf-webproject)
161

    
162
Astakos
163
-------
164

    
165
* Redesign of the accounting system (quotaholder) and integration into
166
  Astakos.
167

    
168
  * Simplified the quotaholder model; removed tables Entity and Policy; now
169
    table Holding contains limit and usage for every holding.
170
  * Extended table Holding, so that we can keep track of quota for every
171
    valid combination of holder (e.g. user), resource, and source (e.g. the
172
    default system or some specific project).
173
  * Refactored code for issuing and resolving commissions for robustness;
174
    added a 'force' option to bypass the upper limit check when issuing a
175
    commission.
176
  * Simplified syncing to the quotaholder; removed fields from models
177
    Project and ProjectMembership, previously needed for syncing; removed
178
    state PROJECT_DEACTIVATED from ProjectMembership.
179
  * Removed settings ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_URL, ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_TOKEN,
180
    and ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_POOLSIZE.
181

    
182
* API-related changes:
183

    
184
  * Implemented API calls for quota, resources, and commissions.
185
  * Moved all API calls under '/account/v1.0'.
186
  * Implemented the keystone API call POST /tokens under '/identity/v2.0'.
187

    
188
* Service and resource specification and handling:
189

    
190
  * Specified a format for defining services along with the API endpoints
191
    and the resources they expose. Migrated internal resource name by
192
    prefixing it with service name (e.g. 'vm' becomes 'cyclades.vm');
193
    renamed registered service 'pithos+' to 'pithos'.
194
  * Specified a procedure to register a Synnefo component, its services and
195
    their resources in astakos and set the resources' default base quota
196
    limit. Removed resource definitions from settings.
197
  * Moved service and resource presentation data out of the respective db
198
    models into a separate file of UI constants.
199

    
200
* Converted the limit on pending applications from a setting to a quotable
201
  resource. Converted the related user setting to a user-specific base quota
202
  limit. Deprecated model UserSetting; removed setting
203
  ASTAKOS_PENDING_APPLICATION_LIMIT.
204

    
205
* Changes in locking strategy:
206

    
207
  * Lock only project's chain for all project operations; lock user before
208
    syncing to quotaholder.
209
  * When locking multiple rows (e.g. users or holdings) include an ORDER BY
210
    clause in the query to impose ordering on locking.
211

    
212
* Changes in views:
213

    
214
  * Replaced custom transaction context with a simple decorator for managing
215
    transactions and a context 'ExceptionHandler', which logs and suppresses
216
    exceptions
217

    
218
* Added fine grain user auth provider's policies.
219

    
220
  * Administrator can override default auth provider policies to a specific 
221
    user or group of users.
222
  * Optionally a user can be assigned to a list of groups, based on the
223
    authentication method he choosed to signup.
224

    
225
* Removed explicit handling of SMTP errors on each email delivery. Exceptions 
226
  are now propagated to base django exception handler.
227

    
228
* Email used in html/email tempaltes which prompt user to contact for service 
229
  support prompts is now defined in ``CONTACT_EMAIL`` setting introduced in 
230
  snf-common settings.
231

    
232
* Improvements in user activation flow
233

    
234
  * User moderation now takes place after the user has verified his email
235
    address.
236
  * User model enriched with additional user state fields
237
  * Split activation email from moderation process. Administrator is required 
238
    to moderate user explicitly using the `user-modify --accept` or
239
    `user-modify --reject` commands.
240
  * Improved logging throught out user activation procedures.
241

    
242
* Remove deprecated AstakosUser model fields: `provider`,
243
  `third_party_identifier`
244

    
245
* Allow override of authentication provider messages using the following 
246
  format in setting names: ``ASTAKOS_<PROVIDER_MODULE>_<MSGID>_MSG``
247

    
248
* Cloudbar automatically tries to identify the active service based on window 
249
  location.
250

    
251
* Removing authentication provider view is now CSRF protected.
252

    
253

254
  access available Synnefo services API's.
255

    
256
* Remove of ASTAKOS_*_EMAIL_SUBJECT settings. All email subjects are now 
257
  defined in astakos.im.messages module. Overriding default values can be 
258
  achieved using custom gettext files or using astakos messages settings::
259
	
260
	#change of greeting email subject
261
  	ASTAKOS_GREETING_EMAIL_SUBJECT_MESSAGE = 'Welcome to my cloud'
262

    
263
* Remove ``ASTAKOS_ACTIVATION_REDIRECT_URL`` and ``ASTAKOS_LOGIN_SUCCESS_URL`` 
264
