ANNOUNCE: virt-manager 3.0.0 released



I'm happy to announce the release of virt-manager 3.0.0!

virt-manager is a desktop application for managing KVM, Xen, and LXC
virtualization via libvirt.

The release can be downloaded from:

http://virt-manager.org/download/

This release includes:

- virt-install --cloud-init support (Athina Plaskasoviti, Cole
  Robinson)
- The virt-convert tool has been removed. Please use virt-v2v instead
- A handful of UI XML configuration options have been removed. The XML
  editor can be used instead. For a larger discussion see this thread:
  https://www.redhat.com/archives/virt-tools-list/2019-June/msg00117.html
- The 'New VM' UI now has a 'Manual Install' option which creates a VM
  without any required install media
- In the 'New VM' UI, the network/pxe install option has been removed.
  If you need network boot, choose 'Manual Install' and set the boot
  device after initial VM creation
- 'Clone VM' UI has been reworked and simplified
- 'Migrate VM' UI now has an XML editor for the destination VM
- Global and per-vm option to disable graphical console autoconnect.
  This makes it easier to use virt-manager alongside another client like
  virt-viewer
