Apache CloudStack 4.0.2 Released!
(This is the official release announcement text for the 4.0.2 release. You can also find it on the Apache CloudStack blog, but I wanted to make sure we spread the news far and wide. Congrats to the project on another successful release!)
The Apache CloudStack project is pleased to announce the 4.0.2 release of the CloudStack Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud orchestration platform. This is a minor release in the 4.0.0 branch, which contains fixes for 40 bugs.
Apache CloudStack is an integrated software platform that allows users to build a feature-rich IaaS. CloudStack includes an intuitive user interface and rich API for managing the compute, networking, accounting, and storage for private, hybrid, or public clouds. The project entered the Apache Incubator in April 2012, and graduated in March 2013.
The 4.0.2 release includes fixes for a number of issues, including two minor security vulnerabilities (CVE–2013–2756 and CVE–2013–2758), problems displaying storage statistics, a fix for the SSVM HTTP proxy, support for CentOS 6.4, and other fixes.

In addition to the official source code release, individual contributors have also made convenience binaries available on the Apache CloudStack download page.
