* Significant additions to `slcli file` and `slcli block` commands. You can now authorize hosts, revoke access. You can also create, delete, restore, disable, enable snapshots. These features need to be battle-tested so report any issues that you see.
* Adds logic to `SoftLayer.create_client_from_env` that detects if a REST endpoint_url was given in order to use the REST transport automatically. This means that you can also configure REST endpoints for `slcli`. The default still uses XML-RPC endpoint, but from a small amount of testing shows that the REST transport is significantly faster.
* Adds `--network-space` to `slcli subnet list` in order to filter subnets based on network space. The two main options are PUBLIC and PRIVATE. For example, to list all public subnets, you can run: `slcli subnet list --network-space=PUBLIC`
* Fixes a UnicodeEncodeError when piping slcli output with unicode characters. This was mostly reported with `slcli image list` but could also happen with many other calls.
* Adds a new, non-default column, "created_by" that shows who ordered the volume for `slcli file volume-list` and `slcli block volume-list`.
* Fixed a bug where os_version was not displaying correctly in `slcli virtual detail` or `slcli virtual detail`
* Adds a new `slcli report bandwidth` command that will print a report of all bandwidth pools and virtual/hardware servers that your user has access to.
* Adds an "IN" syntax to the `slcli call-api` command. For example, to find VSIs that are in either the dal05 or sng01 datacenter you can run this command: `slcli call-api Account getVirtualGuests -f ' IN dal05,sng01'`
* Added block storage functionality. You can order, list, detail, cancel volumes. You can list and delete snapshots. You can also list ACLs for volumes.
* Added functionality to attach/detach devices to tickets
* Virtual list now lists users and passwords for all known software
* Fixes bug with `vlan detail` CLI command
* Adds missing depdendency that was previously pulled in by prompt_toolkit
* Fix a bug by updating the CDN manager to use the new purge method
* Fixes bug that occured when iscsi listings with resources have no datacenter
* Adds a shell (accessable with `slcli shell`) which provides autocomplete for slcli commands and options
* Move modifying nic speed to `slcli virtual edit` and `slcli hardware edit` instead of having its own command
* How filters work with `slcli call-api` has changed significantly. Instead of accepting JSON, it now accepts an easier-to-use format. See `slcli call-api -h` for examples
* Adds manager for object storage
* 'virtual' and 'hardware' are preferred over 'vs' and 'server' in the CLI
* Improved REST transport support
* Many bug fixes
* Fixes to work with Click v5
* Re-adds `--no-public` option to only provision private interfaces with servers via `slcli server create`
* Removes non-functional `--vlan-public` and `--vlan-private` from `slcli server create`
* VSManager.wait_for_ready will now behave as it is documented to behave.
* Adds a shell which provides a shell interface for `slcli`. This is available by using `slcli shell`
* `slcli vs create` and `slcli server create` will now prompt for missing required options
* Fixes `slcli firewall add` command
* Handles case where `slcli vs detail` and `slcli server detail` was causing an error when trying to display the creator

* Fixes a bug that breaks user confirmation prompts
* Fixes general issue with sorting on certain row types in the CLI
* Fixes image capture for Windows guests
* Fixes bug in `sl setup` command not properly defaulting to current values.
* Fixes bug where turning off compression headers would still send compression headers.
* Reverts to using ids over global identifiers for `sl vs list` and `sl server list`.
* Because there are many changes between version 3 and version 4, it is strongly recommend to pin the version of the SoftLayer python bindings as soon as you can in order to prevent unintentional breakage when upgrading. To keep yourself on version 3, you can use this directive: softlayer>=3,<4. That can be used with pip (pip install softlayer>=3,<4), requirements in your and/or in your requirements.txt file.
* CLI: The command is renamed from `sl` to `slcli` to avoid package conflicts.
* CLI: Global options now need to be specified right after the `slcli` command. For example, you would now use `slcli --format=raw list` over `slcli vs list --format=raw`. This is a change for the following options:
* --format
* -c or --config
* --debug
* --proxy
* -y or --really
* --version
* API: The hardware manager has a significant update to how place_order() works. It will now only support the fast server provisioning package which has presets for options like CPU, Memory and disk.
* API: The client transport is now pluggable. If you want to add extra logging or accounting, you can now subclass or wrap softlayer.transports.XmlRpcTransport in order to do so. A good example of that is done with softlayer.transports.TimingTransport.
* API: Removed deprecated SoftLayer.CCIManager.
* API: Adds virtual server rescue command to SoftLayer.VSManager
* API+CLI: Adds ability to import virtual images from a given URI. The API only supports importing from a swift account using 'swift://'. For more details, see
* CLI: A `--fixtures` global flag was added to pull from fixture data instead of the API. This is useful for discovery, demonstration and testing purposes.
* CLI: A `--verbose` or `-v` flag was added to eventually replace `--debug`. To make a command more verbose, simply add more `-v` flags. For example `sl -vvv vs list` will be the most verbose and show everything down to request/response tracing.
* CLI: Significant changes were done to the CLI argument parsing. Docopt was dropped in favor of click. Therefore, some subtle differences which aren't documented here may exist.
* CLI: Credentials can now be requested using `sl vs credentials <identifier>`, `sl hardware credentials <identifier>` and `sl nas credentials <identifier>` for virtual servers, hardware servers and NAS accounts respectively.
* CLI: Adds virtual server rescue command, `sl vs rescue <identifier>`
* CLI+API: Load balancer support
* CLI: More detail added to the `sl image detail` and `sl image list` commands
* CLI: Adds command to import DNS entries from BIND zone files
* CLI+API: Adds support for booting into rescue images for virtual servers and hardware
* API: Adds ability to order virtual and hardare servers from a quote to the ordering manager
* CLI: Fixes bug with `sl server list-chassis` and `sl server list-chassis`

* CLI+API: Improved dedicated server ordering. Adds power management for hardware servers: power-on, power-off, power-cycle, reboot
* CLI+API: Adds a networking manager and adds several network-related CLI modules. This includes the ability to:
* list, create, cancel and assign global IPs
* list, create, cancel and detail subnets. Also has the ability to lookup details about an IP address with 'sl subnet lookup'
* list, detail VLANs
* show and edit RWhois data

* CLI: Adds a --debug option to print out debugging information. --debug=3 is the highest log level which prints full HTTP request/responses including the body
* CLI: The commands in the main help are now organized into categories
* Several bug fixes and improvements
* Removed Python 2.5 support. Some stuff MIGHT work with 2.5 but it is no longer tested
* API: Refactored managers into their own module to not clutter the top level
* CLI+API: Added much more hardware support: Filters for hardware listing, dedicated server/bare metal cloud ordering, hardware cancellation

* CLI+API: Added Post Install script support for CCIs and hardware
* CLI: Added Message queue functionality
* CLI: Added --debug option to CLI commands
* API: Added more logging
* API: Added token-based auth so you can use the API bindings with your username/password if you want. (It's still highly recommended to use your API key instead of your password)
* Consistency changes/bug fixes
* Added sphinx documentation. See it here:
* CCI: Adds Support for Additional Disks
* CCI: Adds a way to block until transactions are done on a CCI
* CLI: For most CCI commands, you can specify id, hostname, private ip or public ip as <identifier>
* CLI: Adds the ability to filter list results for CCIs
* API: for large result sets, requests can now be chunked into smaller batches on the server side. Using service.iter_call('getObjects', ...) or service.getObjects(..., iter=True) will return a generator regardless of the results returned. offset and limit can be passed in like normal. An additional named parameter of 'chunk' is used to limit the number of items coming back in a single request, defaults to 100
