Libcloud is a Python library that abstracts away the differences among
multiple cloud provider APIs. It allows users to manage cloud services
(servers, storage, loadbalancers, DNS) offered by many different providers
through a single, unified and easy to use API.

We are pleased to announce the release of Libcloud 1.3.0!

- Introduced new base API for instantiating drivers
- Added certificate path for SLES12/OpenSUSE12
- Deprecate DigitalOcean v1 API support in favour of v2 API
- Deprecate RunAbove cloud drivers in favour of new OVH cloud driver
- Fix reporting function for detailed admin logs in Dimension Data Driver
- Added edit firewall functionality to Dimension Data driver
- Bugfix - Fixed listing nodes issue in Python 3 libvirt
- Added FCU (Flexible Compute Unit) support to the Outscale driver.
- [google compute] Add "WINDOWS" guestOsFeatures option.
- When creating volumes on OpenStack with defaults for `location` or
  newer OpenStack versions would throw errors. The OpenStack driver
will now only
  post those arguments if non-`NoneType`.
- When fetching the node details of a non-existing node, OpenStack would raise a
  `BaseHTTPError` instead of returning `None`, as was intended. Fixed
tests and code.
- Added `ex_stop_node` to the OpenStack driver.
- When creating volume snapshot, the arguments `name` and
`description` are truely
  optional when working with newer OpenStack versions. The OpenStack
driver will now
  only post thost arguments if they are non-`NoneType`.
- StorageVolumeSnapshot now has an attribute `name` that has the name
of the snapshot
  if the provider supports it. This used to be `.extra['name']`, but
that is inconsistent
  with `Node` and `StorageVolume`. The `extra` dict still holds `name`
for backwards
- Introduced new Racher driver
- Fixed bug in Docker util library for fetching images from the docker
hub API. API
  was returning 301 and redirects were not being followed.
- Added fetch tags support in elb driver
- Added storage permissions for Google Cloud Storage
