[Libvirt-announce] Release of libvirt-1.2.0



  Technically this is also the first release of libvirt-python
as this is the major change leading to the bump in middle version
number.
  The libvirt tarballs and rpms are available at the usual place:
    ftp://libvirt.org/libvirt/

while libvirt-python-1.2.0 tarball and rpms are in the new location:
    ftp://libvirt.org/libvirts

 of course both git trees are now tagged and development can resume.
The other 2 major user visible features are support for gluster pools
at the storage level and support for VBox 4.3 .
