If you're having trouble with the formatting, this release announcement is
available online https://blogs.rdoproject.org/2019/04/rdo-stein-released/

The RDO community is pleased to announce the general availability of the RDO
build for OpenStack Stein for RPM-based distributions, CentOS Linux and Red
Hat Enterprise Linux. RDO is suitable for building private, public, and
hybrid clouds. Stein is the 19th release from the OpenStack project, which
is the work of more than 1200 contributors <http://stackalytics.com/> from
around the world.

The release is already available on the CentOS mirror network at

The RDO community project curates, packages, builds, tests and maintains a
complete OpenStack component set for RHEL and CentOS Linux and is a member
of the CentOS Cloud Infrastructure SIG
<https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Cloud>. The Cloud
Infrastructure SIG focuses on delivering a great user experience for CentOS
Linux users looking to build and maintain their own on-premise, public or
hybrid clouds.

All work on RDO and on the downstream release, Red Hat OpenStack Platform
is 100% open source, with all code changes going upstream first.

Interesting things in the Stein release
<https://releases.openstack.org/stein/highlights.html> include:


   Ceph Nautilus <https://ceph.com/releases/v14-2-0-nautilus-released/> is
   the default version of Ceph, a free-software storage platform, implements
   object storage on a single distributed computer cluster, and provides
   interfaces for object-, block- and file-level storage, within RDO (or is
   it the default without OpenStack?). Within Nautilus, the Ceph Dashboard has
   gained a lot of new functionality like support for multiple users / roles,
   SSO (SAMLv2) for user authentication, auditing support, a new landing page
   showing more metrics and health info, I18N support, and REST API
   documentation with Swagger API.

   The extracted Placement service
   <https://docs.openstack.org/placement/latest/usage/index.html>, used to
   track cloud resource inventories and usages to help other services
   effectively manage and allocate their resources, is now packaged as part of
   RDO. Placement has added the ability to target a candidate resource
   provider, easing specifying a host for workload migration, increased API
   performance by 50% for common scheduling operations, and simplified the
   code by removing unneeded complexity, easing future maintenance.

Other improvements include:

   - The TripleO deployment service <http://tripleo.org/>, used to develop
   and maintain tooling and infrastructure able to deploy OpenStack in
   production, using OpenStack itself wherever possible, added support for
   podman and buildah for containers and container images. Open Virtual
   Network (OVN) is now the default network configuration and TripleO now has
   improved composable network support for creating L3 routed networks and
   IPV6 network support.

The Next Release Cycle

At the end of one release, focus shifts immediately to the next, Train,
which has an estimated GA the week of 14-18 October 2019. The full schedule
is available at https://releases.openstack.org/train/schedule.html.

Twice during each release cycle, RDO hosts official Test Days shortly after
the first and third milestones; therefore, the upcoming test days are 13-14
June 2019 for Milestone One and 16-20 September 2019 for Milestone Three.
Get Started

There are three ways to get started with RDO.

To spin up a proof of concept cloud, quickly, and on limited hardware, try
an All-In-One Packstack installation
<https://www.rdoproject.org/install/packstack/>. You can run RDO on a
single node to get a feel for how it works.

For a production deployment of RDO, use the TripleO Quickstart
<https://www.rdoproject.org/tripleo/> and you’ll be running a production
cloud in short order.

Finally, for those that don’t have any hardware or physical resources,
there’s the OpenStack Global Passport Program
<https://www.openstack.org/passport>. This is a collaborative effort
between OpenStack public cloud providers to let you experience the freedom,
performance and interoperability of open source infrastructure. You can
quickly and easily gain access to OpenStack infrastructure via trial
programs from participating OpenStack public cloud providers around the
Get Help

The RDO Project participates in a Q&A service at https://ask.openstack.org.
We also have our users at lists.rdoproject.org
<https://lists.rdoproject.org/mailman/listinfo/users> for RDO-specific

The #rdo channel on Freenode IRC is also an excellent place to find and
give help.

We also welcome comments and requests on the CentOS mailing lists
<https://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo> and the CentOS and TripleO IRC
channels (#centos, #centos-devel, and #tripleo on irc.freenode.net),
however we have a more focused audience within the RDO venues.
