Hi Folks,

I wanted to send out an announce on the new version of the juju digital
ocean plugin 0.5.1

Docs and download info are on the project page.

Its been in fairly regular use by lots of folks and is stable. It takes
about 3-4m to bootstrap a new environment, and additional machine creation
is multi-threaded for speed.

I'm regularly using to create dozen+ machine environments in a few minutes.

Some cool tricks that can be done by it with it are cross region
environments ( juju add-machine --constraints="region=nyc3" && juju
add-machine --constraints="region=ams" ).

Regarding this release and a changelog.

 - os images for ubuntu are looked up via api when adding machines, DO has
started updating their image with a bit more frequency and the previous
static mapping in the plugin has been removed. Additional latency is about

 - new list-machines subcommand which uses DO api to show all machines and
their DO details in tabular format.  (see readme for examples).

 - destroy-environment --force both of which bypass juju and use the
digital ocean api

Roadmap on futures

 - digital ocean has a new api version that supports userdata and ipv6

ps. if you don't have a digital ocean account signups via my affiliate link
