Tested Runtimes for Xena¶
At the start of the Xena development cycle, the current LTS or stable distribution versions are:
CentOS 8 Stream
Python Runtimes for Xena¶
It is the policy that each OpenStack release cycle will target the latest available version of Python; default Python runtimes on the distributions listed above; and versions used in integration tests at the start of the cycle, at least until the point when all projects have migrated to a later version.
Based on the criteria above, all Python-based projects must target and test against, at a minimum:
Python 3.6 (default in CentOS 8 Stream)
Python 3.8 (latest available; default in Ubuntu 20.04)
More details on Python requirements can be found in Project Testing Interface: Python.
Node.js Runtime for Xena¶
Golang Runtime for Xena¶
At this time, there are still frequent releases of Go with a wide variety of distribution packaged versions. Given the current state of Go support and the number of projects within OpenStack using Go, no formal version declaration is being made at this time.
More details on Go requirements can be found in Project Testing Interface: Go.
