We are pleased to announce the availability of beta Vagrant[1] Cloud
Images. These images have been customized to work with the Vagrant
development environment, and are based on the Ubuntu Cloud Images. As
such, these are vanilla images. They do, however, have the Virtualbox
guest additions found in the Universe archive.

For those who use Vagrant, your feedback is essential. Please feel free
to email me or the list any feedback, questions or concerns. 

The images are approximately 256M in size, and are configured for 512MB
of RAM. They use a custom cloud-init user-data to drive the first boot.
And of course, they have the vagrant user with vagrant insecure SSH key
pre-installed. Right now we have published the 12.10 (Quetzal Quantal)
[2] and the 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) development release [3] daily
images. In the next few days the 12.04.2 (Precise Pangolin) daily will
be published. During the beta period, we will not be promoting any of
the Vagrant boxes with the regular releases of the Ubuntu Cloud Images
and will only publish the daily image builds; after the beta period we
these images will be promoted with the releases.
