Upcoming cloud-init 19.4 and ending py2.7 support
I wanted to give an update on the upcoming releases and uploads for
cloud-init for the rest of the year.
First, we have started a stable release update (SRU) for Ubuntu. This
will release the tip of cloud-init to the currently supported Ubuntu
releases. This included Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial), 18.04 LTS (Bionic),
19.04 (Disco), and 19.10 (Eoan). We estimate the SRU to be released on
Thursday, December 12.
Next, we plan to cut the final release of the year, 19.4, on Tuesday,
December 17. For any features and bug fixes desired for this release, we
would like to have landed any merge proposals by the end of the day
Friday, December 13.
Finally, the 19.4 release will be the last release to support Python 2.7
as previously announced . After the release we will cut a branch that
can continue to receive updates, similar to what we did for ending
Python 2.6 support. Between that release and the 20.1 release we will
remove Python 2 support from CI tests, tox, etc.
If you have any questions or concern with the above please feel free to
reply here or chat with us in #cloud-init on Freenode.
