Hash: SHA256

Depending on your half of the world, Happy Fall or Happy Spring!

Cloud-init release 17.1 is now available.

If you're paying attention, you probably noticed a version change from
0.7.9 to 17.1. We have changed the version numbering policy and are now
following a YY.X format. 17.1 indicates that this is the first release
in 2017. Future releases are initially intended on a roughly 3 month

The 17.1 release:
 * Took almost exactly 9 months (December 23, 2016 to September 21, 2017)
 * Had 51 contributors from 31 domains.
 * Contained 134 bug fixes.
 * Increased unit test coverage from 58 to 62 percent.

 - Greatly improved test and continuous integration:
   - test framework supports many enhancements and added the ability
     to test using KVM.
   - Jenkins service runs c-i tests and reports back to merge proposals.
   - More complete integration tests run nightly against trunk.
 - Cross-distro work: There were significant contributions to SUSE
   and RedHat and FreeBSD.
 - Network configuration:
    - system network configuration enhancements have been made
      on RedHat, SUSE and Ubuntu for the following datasources:
        Ec2, ConfigDrive, DigitalOcean, MAAS, NoCloud, SmartOS
    - NoCloud datasource supports input in netplan format.
    - AWS/Ec2 will now enable ipv6 support when present.
 - Faster and safer boot through cloud-id. Cloud-init's systemd generator
   reduces the datasources that will be searched to only those that may be
 - Cloud-config schema validation: 'cloud-init devel schema' command
   can validate a cloud-config for some config modules, saving you time
   and resources. More coverage of modules will come this next release.
 - New support for Scaleway and AliYun DataSources have been enabled by
 - Python3.6 support (Cloud-init now runs with python 2.6 -> 3.6).
 - Developer tools:
   - 'cloud-init analyze' reports where cloud-init spent its
     time similarly to systemd-analyze.
   - 'cloud-init collect-logs': collects useful information into
     a tarball for easy bug reporting. There is also integration with
     apport on Ubuntu where you can run: 'ubuntu-bug cloud-init'.

A big thank you to all who contributed.
