Synnefo-wide
24
------------
25
* Standardize URLs for Synnefo Components:
26

    
27
  * impose structure and naming conventions to all URL related settings. Make
28
    each component deployable under a user-configurable <COMPONENT>_BASE_URL.
29
    Each API (compute, image, etc.) is deployable under a
30
    developer-configurable prefix beneath BASE_URL.
31

    
32
* Branding customization support across synnefo frontend components:
33

    
34
  * ability to adapt the Astakos, Pithos and Cyclades Web UI to a company’s
35
    visual identity. This is possible using the snf-branding component, which
36
    is automatically installed on the nodes running the API servers for
37
    Astakos, Pithos and Cyclades.
38

    
39

    
40
* Create a JSON-exportable definition document for each Synnefo Components
41
  (Astakos, Cyclades, Pithos, etc.) that consolidates APIs (services),
42
  resources, and other standardized properties (e.g. default URL prefixes).
43
* Implement common client for communication with Astakos and proper error
44
  handling.
45

    
46
Astakos
47
-------
48
* Redesign of the accounting system (quotaholder) and integration into
49
  Astakos.
50
* Implemented the keystone API call POST /tokens
51

    
52
  * Specified the API call allong with a procedure to register a Synnefo
53
    component (e.g. cyclades) along with the services it provides (e.g.
54
    compute, plankton) and the resources it handles (e.g. vm, cpu).
55

    
56
* All API calls are moved under '/account/v1.0'.
57
* Support API calls for quotas, commissions and resources.
58
* Improved user activation process
59
* Improve limit of pending applications by making it a quotable resource.
60
* Added fine grain user auth provider's policies.
61
* Overhauling of Astakos management commands for usability and uniformity.
62

    
63
Cyclades
64
--------
65
* Speed up private network creation, by creating a network to a Ganeti backend
66
  only when a server connects to that network.
67
* Rename management commands for commissions and resources for uniformity with
68
  other services.
69
* Synchronize Cyclades API with Openstack Compute v2.0 API.
