New in this release:

  - New tool 'virt-convert': Allows converting between different types of
      virt configuration files. Currently only supports vmx -> virt-image.
  - New tool 'virt-pack': Converts virt-image xml format to vmx and packs
      in a tar.gz. (Note this will likely be merged with virt-convert in
      the future).
  - virt-install: Support for remote VM installation. Can use install media
      and disk images on remote host if shared via libvirt. Allows
      provisioning storage on remote pools.
  - virt-install new options:
      new --wait option, allows putting a hard time limit on installs.
      new --sound option, to create VM with soundcard emulation.
      new --disk option, allows specifying media as a path, storage volume, or
        a pool to provision storage on, device type, and several other options.
        Deprecates --file, --size, --nonsparse.
      new --prompt option. Input prompting is no longer the default, this
        option turns it back on.

  - virt-install: numa support via --cpuset=auto option.
  - virt-image: --replace option to overwrite existing VM image file.
