The Ceilometer team is proud to announce the first synchronous
milestone delivery with the OpenStack project. Grizzly-2 is also the
last Folsom compatible version of Ceilometer as we are planning to
introduce some breaking changes very soon in our trunk to enable a
totally new set of features bringing Ceilometer beyond basic metering
into monitoring and alerting.

With this milestone, 10 blueprints have been implemented and 53 bugs
have been fixed. Here is a quick summary of the new features:
- Plugins can now be disabled so that they will not be polled when
they are not needed.
- Removed all nova database access from Ceilometer agents
- SQLAlchemy DB driver is now fully implemented
- Ceilometer is now provided with a default configuration file
- Multi-dimension indexing allows to perform queries that aggregate
meters based on additional keypair values other than the simple
- Ceilometer now provides a user facing API which allows non-admin
users to query Ceilometer, limiting them to their own data.
- Compute agent interaction with hypervisor layer is now independent
of nova internals
- There is now a python-ceilometerclient library and a ceilometer
- Swift is now instrumented and meters therefore accessible
- Ceilometer does not need to use nova.flags nor to read nova
