[Ovirt-devel] 0.96 oVirt Release



The oVirt development team is pleased to announce the 0.96 release of
both the oVirt Node and oVirt Server Suite.

New features in this release include:

Common:
* based on Fedora 10
* added support for building in mock and i386 builds on x86_64
* make source target to build source iso or tarball
* Add logic for allowing SSH keys to be included during image and
  appliance creation time
  - this is to be used for development purposes only
* image/appliance build process creates a manifest tar that can be used in
  comparing builds

oVirt Node:
* standalone and autoinstall mode
  - first boot configuration menu
  - network configuration
  - use LVM volumes on GPT partitioned local disk
    for autoinstall mode ovirt boot parameter is used to define volumes:
        ovirt_vol=BOOT_MB:SWAP_MB:ROOT_MB:CONFIG_MB:LOGGING_MB
  - livecd image to local disk installer
  - use file bindmounts for persisted configs
  - use optional /config from livecd image
  - add BOOTIF=link|eth* support
* oVirt branded splash image for boot menu
* ovirt-node subpackages:
  - ovirt-node-stateless is for use on the embedded oVirt Node.
  - ovirt-node-stateful is for use on already installed Fedora hosts to
    configure that host to act as a Node. Presently it only works when run
    on the same host as the oVirt Appliance.
* edit-livecd script for ad-hoc modification to livecd image
* add minimal python into the Node image
* use minimal selinux configuration and add modules selectively
