Hi folks,

Thanks very much to everyone who helped test the Web UI this week!  I've 
incorporated everyone's testing reports into a new release, which I have
pushed out to the Fedora and EPEL Testing mirrors.   You can also get 
the RPMs from http://cobbler.et.redhat.com/download/. 

As I stated before, the WebUI is still a beta at this point, so please 
test away at it, and we'll continue to incorporate your feedback.

I've been thinking about cobbler/koan 0.6.3, and at minimum, here's what 
I'm going to be looking at adding for the next release:

    cobbler -- paginate the systems list page in the Web UI so you don't 
have to scroll when you have 1000+ systems :)
    cobbler -- support creation of inherited profiles from within the WebUI
    koan -- support creation of multiple network interfaces as opposed 
to just one (a couple of folks have asked for this)
    koan -- if name is not a MAC address, but a MAC is specified in 
--mac, fix the bug that makes the virtual MAC address be random.
    potentially look at a few items from the Trac Misc RFE page -- 
    look again at developing a sqlite-backed serializer, mainly for 
performance reasons with very large numbers of systems to serialize
    possibly finally move /var/lib/cobbler/settings to 
/etc/cobbler/settings :)

As usual, if anyone has any other features they would like to see, let 
me know -- and I'll takes patches too :)
