[Libguestfs] New release 0.8.5 of virt-v2v and virt-p2v



We just released virt-v2v 0.8.5, which also covers virt-p2v. This is primarily a bugfix release, with a couple of new features thrown in. The major changes are summarised below:

V2V
***

* Default -ic and -oc to qemu:///session or qemu:///system as appropriate depending on root. * Allow Windows conversions to succeed when firstboot.bat, rhsrvany.exe and rhev-apt.exe aren't available.
* Include rhsrvany.exe in default packaging.
* Fix various crashes.

P2V Client
**********

* Support for NetworkManager 0.9.
* Fix no cursor on startup issue.
* Fix percentages displayed by progress bar during transfer.
* More robust error handling.
* Fix various crashes.
* Support machines with cciss devices.
* Add a console on tty2 for debugging during P2V.

P2V Image Builder
*****************

* Support RHEL 6 and F16

New Fedora packages will be available in F16 updates-testing shortly. Note that the P2V client is built by running virt-p2v-image-builder which, by default, creates an ISO image from the current stable Fedora repositories. This means that until this update makes it into stable you will have to manually add updates-testing when building the P2V image, for example:

virt-p2v-image-builder -a http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/updates/testing/16/i386

If you don't do this, you'll be testing the older version of virt-p2v from stable. Also note that you have to add the i386 repository specifically, as we only build for i386. This image is also able to convert x86_64 machines.

Happy testing,

Matt
