Release Notes: Satisfying-Cactus

The Satisfying-Cactus (5.0) release includes R-CORD, E-CORD and M-CORD profiles. Detailed information about these profiles can be found in the Service Profile Guide. The following summarizes the new features.

Platform and Build System

  • Added support for dynamically loading new services and service profiles into a running system. R-CORD and E-CORD services converted to use new dynamic loading mechanism, but M-CORD still uses corebuilder.

  • Refactored build to isolate profile-specific information (e.g., models, TOSCA templates). R-CORD, M-CORD, and E-CORD converted to use refactoring.

  • Added support for logging and diagnostics. See the Logging and Diagnostics section of the guide for more information.

  • Added new scenarios to build:

    • preppedpod: Installs a CORD POD without MaaS on pre-prepared systems, which can run the R-CORD test suite.
