We are very happy to announce the first openATTIC release in 2017. Although it is not as extensive as usual it contains some significant highlights:
This release comes with a very new feature - the implementation of a Taskqueue module. Tasks that take more time, for example the creation of placement groups in a Ceph cluster, can now be controlled in the openATTIC GUI. The Taskqueue adds the functionality to create tasks, run them in the background, track their status and collect their results. We also added some sections about background tasks and the Taskqueue usage to our documentation.
Furthermore, we've made some usability improvements. The installed version of all known openATTIC hosts is displayed in the GUI now. Buttons and pages without any function have been removed from the user interface.
