* API’s now running under apache2 with mod_wsgi
In Ocata we’ve updated the following APIs to run under apache2 with mod_wsgi: aodh-api, barbican-api, ceilometer-api, cinder-api, and the nova-placement-api. Please keep this in mind as the packages will no longer install systemd unit files for these services, and will instead install apache2 with corresponding apache2 site configuration.
* libvirt 2.5.0 changes
In this release of libvirt, the libvirt-bin systemd service has been renamed to libvirtd, and the unix_sock_group has changed from libvirtd to libvirt.
* openstack-dashboard changes
In Ocata we’ve moved static assets from /usr/share/openstack-dashboard/static to /var/lib/openstack-dashboard/static.
nova console log is empty with libvirt 2.5.0: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1667033
