[libvirt] ANNOUNCE: libvirt-sandbox "Owami Desert" release 0.2.1



I pleased to announce the a new public release of libvirt-sandbox,
version 0.2.1, 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. This
release has focused entirely on improving the virt-sandbox-service tool

Changed in this release:

 - Requires libvirt-glib >= 0.1.7
 - ABI change: Removed GVirSandboxCleaner class
 - Don't add link in /var/log/journal for image based containers
 - Don't hold open libvirt connection when displaying service
   sandbox consoles
 - Record container UUID in config for service sandboxes
 - Add missing RPMs deps
 - Allow custom mounts to be specified to virt-sandbox-service
 - Fix misc bugs in sandbox creation/deletion
 - Use 'guest bind' for configuring image based service sandboxes
 - Allow NIC MAC address to be chosen
 - Include systemd-initctl.socket in service sandboxes by default
   to allow libvirt initiated graceful shutdown

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release

Regards,
Daniel
