CloudStack Acton released!

After many months of hard work and long weekend hours, we are finally releasing the Acton release.

This is the first major CloudStack release since our 2.2.x series and it includes many new features such as:

- - Network as a Service
- - Projects
- - LDAP Support
- - Openstack Swift Support
- - Netscaler MPX/VPX/SDX Support
- - vSphere 5.0 Support
- - XenServer 6.0 Support
- - Brand spanking new User Interface
- - and many others

I want to take a moment and thank the community for all of their help. The beta process resulted in hundreds of community discovered and reported bugs. This release also had a far greater level of non-Citrix contribution, from bug fixes and even some major feature contribution.

You can find the binaries here:

Please do note that upgrading from 2.2.x is not yet supported. The upgrade process is coming shortly, but needs massive amounts of QA in the process.

    Check for documentation updates

    The corrected systemvm link is available in the latest version of documentation at The CloudStack team updates documentation frequently between releases, so it's worthwhile to get the new versions from time to time.
