[libvirt] ANNOUNCE: libvirt-glib release 0.0.4



I am pleased to announce that a new release of the libvirt-glib package,
version 0.0.4 is now available from

  ftp://libvirt.org/libvirt/glib/

The packages are GPG signed with

    Key fingerprint: DAF3 A6FD B26B 6291 2D0E  8E3F BE86 EBB4 1510 4FDF (4096R)

New in this release:

- Add support for configuring sound, serial, parallel
  and channel devices
- Add support for newer libvirt shutdown event
- Add support for setting SPICE/VNC passwords
- Fix storage pool annotations
- Improve docs for memory APIs
- Fix problem with duplicated attributes
- Many internal XML helper API cleanups/additions
- Add API for retrieving list of all devices
- Fix mixup between g_new0/g_slice_free
- Change namespace for GVirConfig APIs (breaks ABI
  and API)
- New APIs for save/suspend

libvirt-glib comprises three distinct libraries:

   - libvirt-glib    - Integrate with the GLib event loop and error handling
   - libvirt-gconfig - Representation of libvirt XML documents as GObjects
   - libvirt-gobject - Mapping of libvirt APIs into the GObject type system

NB: While libvirt aims to be API/ABI stable, for the first few releases,
we are *NOT* guaranteeing that libvirt-glib libraries are API/ABI stable.
ABI stability will only be guaranteed once the bulk of the APIs have been
fleshed out and proved in non-trivial application usage. We anticipate
this will be within the next 6 months in order to line up with Fedora 17.

Follow up comments about libvirt-glib should be directed to the regular
libvir-list redhat com development list.

Thanks to all the people involved in contributing to this release.


Daniel
