OpenSDS Bali Released

Wrapping up right on time, the team completed the Bali development cycle last week. This release brings a lot of great new functionality. Really an impressive accomplishment by all involved.

The Capri release will get underway shortly, but it’s a perfect time of the year to take a break and look back at all that was done over the last year.
Truly impressive!

On to Capri

We are working on finalizing the Capri development cycle schedule now. Expect that to show up on very soon!

We have a lot of really good plans for Capri shaping up and are excited to see where things go from here.

A huge thank you to everyone that has been involved in the development, support, and feedback that has helped shape OpenSDS so far!
