[virt-tools-list] Libosinfo 0.1.0

Libosinfo 0.1.0 is out!

This release marks the start of the API/ABI stability promise. While some APIs
may become deprecated in the future, no APIs will be removed/changed in an
incompatible manner. In the unlikely event that an incompatible API change
becomes necessary, the library soname will be incremented to allow parallel
installation of both old & new libraries.

Changes since 0.0.5:

- Add Utility function to retrieve OS devices by property.
- Improved OS media detection.
- Add missing 'const' OsinfoList function params.
- Use ENV{} in udev rule.

What is libosinfo?

libosinfo is a GObject based library API for managing information about
operating systems, hypervisors and the (virtual) hardware devices they can
support. It includes a database containing device metadata and provides APIs
to match/identify optimal devices for deploying an operating system on a
hypervisor. Via the magic of GObject Introspection, the API is available in all
common programming languages with demos for javascript (GJS/Seed) and python
(PyGObject). Also provided are Vala bindings.

libosinfo is Free Software and licenced under LGPLv2+.

- Optional:
