[virt-tools-list] ANNOUNCE: oz0.6.0 release

     I'm pleased to announce release 0.6.0 of Oz.  Oz is a program for doing
automated installation of guest operating systems with limited input from
the user.
     Release 0.6.0 is a bugfix and feature release for Oz.  Some of the
highlights between Oz 0.5.0 and 0.6.0 are:

- The ability to specify the destination for the ICICLE output from oz-install
and oz-generate-icicle
- pydoc class documentation for all internal Oz classes
- Automatic detection of KVM or QEMU at runtime (this allows oz to be used
within virtual machines, although with a large performance hit)
- Less scary warning messages in the debug output
- Printing of the screenshot path when a build fails
- Ability to run multiple Oz installs of the same OS at the same time
- Support for OEL and ScientificLinux
- Support for RHEL-5.7
- Support for CentOS 6
- Support for OpenSUSE arbitrary file injection and command execution
- Ability to make the TDL (template) parsing enforce a root password
- Rejection of localhost URLs for repositories (since they must be reachable
from the guest operating system, localhost URLs make no sense)

Fedora-14, Fedora-15, and RHEL-6 packages are available for this release.  Note
that to install the RHEL-6 packages, you must be running RHEL-6.1 or later.
Instructions on how to get and use Oz are available at

If you have any questions or comments about Oz, please feel free to contact
aeolus-devel lists fedorahosted org or me (clalance redhat com) directly.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release through bug reports,
patches, and suggestions for improvement.

Chris Lalancette
