The virt-manager release includes:

- Use a hiding toolbar for fullscreen mode
- Use libguestfs to show guest packagelist and more (Richard W.M. Jones)
- Basic 'New VM' wizard support for LXC guests
- Remote serial console access (with latest libvirt)
- Remote URL guest installs (with latest libvirt)
- Add Hardware: Support<filesystem>  devices
- Add Hardware: Support<smartcard>  devices (Marc-André Lureau)
- Enable direct interface selection for qemu/kvm (Gerhard Stenzel)

This piece is really cool, but it goes a bit too far in deciding which interfaces to add. In particular, it also lists the tap interfaces of already-existing guests (the ones used to connect between qemu and the host interface/bridge, e.g. "vnet0") as well as the dummy interfaces that are created to give each libvirt virtual network a fixed MAC address (e.g. virbr0-nic).

All of these interface names could be found by perusing the domain and network XML. In addition, the virbrX-nic interfaces are all marked "down" - you may want to only show interfaces that are up.
