Citycloud Openstack API and openstack4j

Our friends over at Sweden’s largest cloud infrastructure provider, Citycloud, recently launched their OpenStack-based cloud to the public. We are as thrilled as they are to see new solutions based on their new infrastructure, and as entrenched in the Java ecosystem as we are on our software side, we are also happy that openstack4j, the fluent Java SDK for OpenStack services, will support Keystone v3 authentication in the upcoming version 2.0.2. The main developer, Jeremy Unruh (gondor at github), quickly implemented the crucial changes required for this support after we brought them to his attention. Thank you for your excellent work, Jeremy, and good luck with OpenStack, Citycloud!
