See what’s new in the latest OpenStack release, and what you can expect to see from the project in the upcoming release.

At the recent Vancouver Summit OpenStack project team leads (PTLs) and core team members offered updates for the OpenStack projects they manage, plus how you can get involved and influence the roadmap.

Superuser features summaries of the videos; you can also catch them on the OpenStack Foundation YouTube channel.


What
Neutron’s goal is to implement services and associated libraries to provide on-demand, scalable and technology-agnostic network abstraction. Neutron provides networking-as-a-service between interface devices (e.g., vNICs) managed by other Openstack services (e.g., Nova, the compute service). There were 240 contributors for the current release for a project that 86 percent of OpenStack users deploy, according to the last User Survey.

Who Miguel Lavalle, PTL for the Queens and Rocky releases.
