[libvirt] ANNOUNCE: libvirt-sandbox "Nubian Desert" release 0.2.0



I pleased to announce the a new public release of libvirt-sandbox,
version 0.2.0, 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 systemd >= 198
 - Fix termination of interactive sandbox client to
   avoid loosing final I/O
 - Stop hardcoding default security label
 - Misc docs typos / fixes
 - Fix infinite loop handling security opts
 - Mandate enablement of introspection
 - Handle NULL broadcast address for NICs
 - Don't assume /var/log/journal exists
 - Improve rollback if creation of service sandbox fails
 - Block host NICs from sandbox
 - Sanity check requested network config
 - Fix sandbox journal location to be a dir not a file
 - Fix parsing of --security option
 - Change virt-sandbox-service to use --security opts
   instead of SELinux specific -l/-t/-d args
 - Replace use of YUM with RPM to improve performance
 - Send dhclient output to /dev/null
 - Avoid getting stuck in waitpid if non-primary process
   exits
 - Allow choice of host virtual networks
 - Support network config with virt-sandbox-service
 - Do not create any NIC in service sandbox by default
 - Cope with SELinux label lacking a category pair
 - Delay dropping credentials until after ttys are opened
 - Fix tty permissions in QEMU init helper to be 0700 instead
   of 0777
 - Add support for non-systemd service containers
 - Add support for i18n of all output strings
 - Remove hardcoding of lxc:/// in virt-sandbox-service
 - Correctly handle EOF from raw console
 - Improve I/O performance of virt-sandbox
 - Allow custom uid/gid for generic service sandboxes
 - Do not run debug shell in service sandboxes
 - Add --package option to virt-sandbox-service for cases
   where the unit file is not owned by an RPM
 - Use drop in systemd service override, instead of
   includes

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release

Regards,
Daniel
