[virt-tools-list] ANNOUNCE: oz 0.7.0 release

     I'm pleased to announce release 0.7.0 of Oz.  Oz is a program for doing
automated installation of guest operating systems with limited input from
the user.
     Release 0.7.0 is a bugfix and feature release for Oz.  Some of the
highlights between Oz 0.6.0 and 0.7.0 are:

- Ability to use the "direct initrd injection" method to install Fedora/RHEL
guests.  This is an internal implementation detail, but can significantly speed
up installs for Fedora or RHEL guests.  (thanks for the tip from
Kashyap Chamarthy)
- Support for Fedora-16 (thanks to Steve Dake for help in making this work)
- Use the serial port to announce guest boot, rather than a network port.  This
makes it so we no longer have to manipulate iptables, and gets us one step
closer to having Oz run as non-root
- (for developers) Re-written unittests in python for speedier execution
- (for developers) Additional methods in the TDL class to merge in external
package lists (thanks to Ian McLeod)

A tarball of this release is available, as well as packages for Fedora-14,
Fedora-15, and RHEL-6.  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 http://aeolusproject.org/oz.html

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
