[libvirt] [ANNOUNCE] libvirt-glib 0.0.9 release



I am pleased to announce that a new release of the libvirt-glib package,
version 0.0.8 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:

  - Full API docs for libvirt-glib library
  - Add API for getting domain OS config
  - Add API for getting domain OS boot devices
  - Add APIs for querying host capabilities
  - Add missing domain OS type enum values
  - Add API for getting domain virt type
  - Add comprehensive API arg checking
  - Add API for getting domain arch
  - Allow zero timeouts in timer
  - Fix build with newer glibc-headers and -O0
  - Fix generation of filesystem source element
  - Port to use Mingw64 toolchain for automated builds
  - Add async API for starting domains
  - Fix thread safety of event loop timeouts/watches
  - Add support for filesystem type=bind|ram


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 forever, with libvirt-glib
we are not yet guaranteeing that libvirt-glib libraries are API/ABI
permanently stable. As of the 0.0.8 release, we have tentatively frozen
the API/ABI with the intent of being longterm stable hereafter, but
there is still a small chance we might find flaws requiring an API/ABI
change. The likelihood of this is low, however, and we will strive to
avoid it.

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.

Regards,
Daniel
