[libvirt] Release of libvirt-1.1.0



  As planned I released libvirt-1.1.0 a couple of hours ago after
a couple more patches and a fix for CVE-2013-2218 were applied. It
should be available on the server along with the rpms:

   ftp://libvirt.org/libvirt/

 The biggest feature leading to the bump in medium release number is
the adition of ACL for individual access control of each API, until now
there was only two classes of access read-only and read write, this
feature is a big enhancement we have been thinking about for years!
This version includes a relatively smaller amount of patches though,
around 200, with a balanced set of bug fixes and enhancements, plus
the fix for CVE-2013-2218 which is afftecting 1.0.6 release.
