[libvirt] Release of libvirt-0.9.11



  So as stated last week I made the release today. It is available
from the ftp:
   ftp://libvirt.org/libvirt/libvirt-0.9.11.tar.gz

along with Fedora 16 rpms I signed. And the release is tagged in the
tree so normal development can resume :-)

The release is rather big, which is not surprizing since in includes 6
weeks of developments instead of the 4 as usual. BTW considering the
rate of the push I still think we should keep a monthly release
schedule, this is way higher than most other projects but as long as
the people doing the packaging and pushes downstream think it's okay
I guess everyone benefits from a shorter cycle (well as long as
we don't break API/features !)
It is sometime difficult to separate from what to label as an
improvement and what to label really as a new feature, in any case there
was plenty of both in this release, along with a copious dose of bug
