13.10
=====

Major new features
------------------

LLDP collection.
  MAAS now collects LLDP data on each node during its
  commissioning cycle. The router to which the node is connected will have
  its MAC address parsed out of the data and made available for using as a
  placement constraint (passing connected_to or not_connected_to to the
  acquire() API call), or you can define tags using expressions such as
  ``//lldp:chassis/lldp:id[@type="mac"]/text() = "20:4e:7f:94:2e:10"``
  which would tag nodes with a router using that MAC address.

New faster installer for nodes.
  MAAS will now make use of the new Curtin_ installer which is much quicker
  than the old Debian Installer process. Typically an installation now
  takes a couple of minutes instead of upwards of 10 minutes. To have a node
  use the faster installer, add the ``use-fastpath-installer`` tag to it,
  or click the "Use the fast installer" button on the node page.

.. _Curtin: https://launchpad.net/curtin

More extensible templates for DHCP, power control, PXE and DNS.
  Templates supplied for these activities are now all in their own template
  file that is customisable by the user. The files now generally live under
  /etc/maas/ rather than embedded in the code tree itself.

Minor feature changes
---------------------

Reworked ephemeral downloading
  While there is no end-user visible change, the ephemeral image download
  process is now driven by a data stream published by Canonical at
  http://maas.ubuntu.com/images/streams. In the future this will allow end
  users to use their own customised images by creating their own stream.
  The configuration for this is now also part of ``pserv.yaml``, obsoleting
  the maas_import_ephemerals configuration file. The config will be auto-
  migrated on the first run of the ``maas-import-ephemerals`` script.

Improved maas-cli support
  Users can now manage their SSH keys and API credentials via the maas-cli
  tool.

Django 1.5
  MAAS is updated to work with Django 1.5

HP Moonshot Systems support.
  MAAS can now manage HP Moonshot Systems as any other hardware. However,
  in order for MAAS to power manage these systems, it requires the user
  to manually specify the iLO credentials before the enlistment process
  begins. This can be done in the ``maas_moonshot_autodetect.py``
  template under ``/etc/maas/templates/commissioning-user-data/snippets/``.
