We’ve just tagged the v0.25 release. Most of the work here is in the OSD cluster, a new librbd library (refactoring existing RBD infrastructure), and a librados API refresh.
The librados changes are an attempt to clean up the API warts sooner rather than later. If there are any issues with the new interface, we’d like to hear about them!
The new librbd library sits on top of librados and captures the RBD striping, snapshotting, and other functionality, presenting a simple block device-like interface. The qemu/KVM driver is being rewritten in terms of librbd, which will vastly simplify the upstream qemu code and allow us to fix bugs and add functionality without being tied to a specific version of qemu/KVM.
The focus for v0.26 will remain on stability, primary with the OSD cluster, RBD, and radosgw. Internally, we’re focusing on building out our QA and performance testing infrastructure.
