Synnefo-wide
17
------------
18
* Standardize URLs for Synnefo Components:
19

    
20
  * impose structure and naming conventions to all URL related settings. Make
21
    each component deployable under a user-configurable <COMPONENT>_BASE_URL.
22
    Each API (compute, image, etc.) is deployable under a
23
    developer-configurable prefix beneath BASE_URL.
24

    
25
* Branding customization support across synnefo frontend components:
26

    
27
  * ability to adapt the Astakos, Pithos and Cyclades Web UI to a company’s
28
    visual identity. This is possible using the snf-branding component, which
29
    is automatically installed on the nodes running the API servers for
30
    Astakos, Pithos and Cyclades.
31

    
32

    
33
* Create a JSON-exportable definition document for each Synnefo Components
34
  (Astakos, Cyclades, Pithos, etc.) that consolidates APIs (services),
35
  resources, and other standardized properties (e.g. default URL prefixes).
36
* Implement common client for communication with Astakos and proper error
37
  handling.
38

44

    
45
  * Specified the API call allong with a procedure to register a Synnefo
46
    component (e.g. cyclades) along with the services it provides (e.g.
47
    compute, plankton) and the resources it handles (e.g. vm, cpu).
48

    
49
* All API calls are moved under '/account/v1.0'.
50
* Support API calls for quotas, commissions and resources.
51
* Improved user activation process
52
* Improve limit of pending applications by making it a quotable resource.
53
* Added fine grain user auth provider's policies.
54
* Overhauling of Astakos management commands for usability and uniformity.
55

    
56
Cyclades
57
--------
58
* Speed up private network creation, by creating a network to a Ganeti backend
59
  only when a server connects to that network.
60
* Rename management commands for commissions and resources for uniformity with
61
  other services.
62
* Synchronize Cyclades API with Openstack Compute v2.0 API.
