[libvirt] Release of libvirt-0.9.12



  So I made the release, it is now available on the FTP server (the rpms
are slowly being uploaded too):
   ftp://libvirt.org/libvirt/

This is mainly a stabilization release, with a lot of bugs fixes, and
portability cleanups. There is still many improvements but relatively
few new features as such (the new parallels driver being postponed to
the actual release of the hypervisor).
I would like to raise the attention to Dan patch set to implement ACL
support to the API, a very needed feature which would bring us very
close to what I would hope for a 1.0.0 release:
  https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2012-May/msg00090.html
