In case you want to give a shot at trying Eucalyptus and haven't seen
Braden's announcement (cf below) -- the instances of Open edX hosted on
OpenCraft.Hosting have all been upgraded last week. So if you want to
give Eucalyptus a try, you can just visit your instance there if you
have one, or apply for the betatest to get one.
So far the upgrade seem to have gone well, with very few issues reported
- kudos to Ned and everyone involved in the release for the level of
polish! (And if you notice anything wrong with your instance since the
upgrade, don't hesitate to reach out.)

The latest Open edX release is here!

infrastructure to optimally support this new release, and we are
pleased to announce that all of our OpenCraft.Hosting beta test Open
edX instances have now been upgraded to the Eucalyptus release.
If you are one of our beta testers, we invite you to login to your
instance and explore the new features, such as self-paced courses,
improved course navigation, and subsection prerequisites.
As always, we love to hear from our beta testers. How do you like the
Eucalyptus improvements? Have you run into any issues? What features
would you like us to add to our hosting service? How is the site
performance? You can let us know by simply replying to this email, or
