[libvirt] ANNOUNCE: Release of libvirt-sandbox version 0.0.2



I pleased to announce the first public release of libvirt-sandbox,
version 0.0.2 is now available for download

  ftp://libvirt.org/libvirt/sandbox/

The packages are GPG signed with

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

The libvirt-sandbox package provides an API layer on top of libvirt-gobject
which facilitates the cration of application sandboxes using virtualization
technology. An application sandbox is a virtual machine or container that
runs a single application binary, directly from the host OS filesystem.
In other words there is no separate guest operating system install to build
or manager.

At this point in time libvirt-sandbox can create sandboxes using either LXC
or KVM, and should in theory be extendable to any libvirt driver. The first
release is able to run simple command line based programs. While there is
some GUI support, this is mostly unreliable / non-functional at this point
in time, future releases will address this properly.

Some examples

Watch this space, there is much more interesting functionality in this
space that will be arriving soon...

Feedback / patches / etc should be directed to the main libvirt
development mailing list.

Daniel
