Hello,
Currently, the libvirt integrated into RHEL-5 beta release is the pretty old 0.1.8 version. Could you confirm that in the first release candidate RHEL-5 RC1 (planned february, 28), the libvirt will be the 0.1.8 version or another one ?

it is 0.1.8 but with 12 patches which are backport of later bug fixes or important features like localization, shareable disk support, core dump support,
etc ...
  I guess it's closer to 0.1.9 as a result than 0.1.8,
Hum ! :-(
Currently, the version of libvirt determines its unequivocal contents. With a patched version of libvirt, it becomes impossible in an application to known the functionalities level of libvirt if the version number is identical to a non-patched libvirt.

Could you explain how it's possible from an application to distinguish between a patched libvirt and a non-patched libvirt or another patched version of libvirt by using the virGetVersion() function ?
