For the Ussuri release, OpenStack received over 24,000 code changes by more than 1,000 developers from 188 different organizations and over 50 countries. OpenStack is supported by a global open source community and at this pace, it continues to be one of the top three open source projects in the world in terms of active contributions, along with the Linux kernel and Chromium.
Among the many enhancements provided in Ussuri, three highlights are:
Operators using Octavia can now define load balancer availability zones that users can select from when creating a new load balancer.
Octavia Users can now specify the list of TLS ciphers that will be accepted on listeners and pools. This was a student led project in partnership with North Dakota State University.
Thank you to the more than 1,000 contributors from more than 50 countries and 188 organizations that contributed to the OpenStack Ussuri release.
