Status report for the Apache jclouds project - October 2014

A cloud agnostic library that enables developers to access a variety of supported cloud providers using one API.

Project Status

jclouds has carried out one successful release (1.8.0) in the last quarter and is in the process of releasing 1.8.1.

There has been quite a lot of maintenance and cleanup work and new feature activity focused on a limited number of supported clouds. The PMC is looking to encourage more involvement to ensure a broader set of providers is actively supported and updated.


jclouds has recently added two new committers:

  • 2014-07-30 (Andrea Turli)
  • 2014-08-01 (Chris Custine)

The PMC, which is still in its initial composition (when jclouds entered the incubator), continues to try to look for engaged contributors.

The project has also resolved to change our PMC chair from Andrew Bayer to Andrew Phillips. This change has been approved by the board.

Community Objectives

The main upcoming aims for the jclouds PMC and community are:

  • Encourage much more active discussion from the "silent majority" of jclouds users around roadmap, desired features etc.
  • Simplify the process for new contributions
  • Reduce maintenance overhead of the overall project
  • Remove outdated and unused APIs and providers
  • Establish levels of interest and usage for remaining APIs and providers, and identify "champions" were possible


Have there been any releases from the project in the last quarter?

  • 1.8.0 (2014-08-05)

The 1.8.1. release is currently in progress.
