I'm pleased to announce version 1.0.15 of libguestfs, the library for
accessing and modifying virtual machine filesystems.

Home page: http://et.redhat.com/~rjones/libguestfs/
Downloads: http://et.redhat.com/~rjones/libguestfs/files/
Source:    http://git.et.redhat.com/?p=libguestfs.git;a=shortlog

New since the previous announcement we have:

 - New 'virt-inspector' tool.  This can tell you at a high level
   what is on a virtual machine, such as how its filesystems are
   mounted, what OS and version it is running, what kernel, drivers
   and apps are installed.

 - New 'lvremove', 'vgremove', 'pvremove' commands.

 - Add really working support for NTFS and FAT.

 - Add really working support for CD-ROMs and DVDs.

 - Add --ro option for read-only mounts in guestfish.

 - New 'set-e2uuid', 'get-e2uuid', 'set-e2label', 'get-e2label'
   commands for setting ext2/3/4 UUIDs and labels.

 - New 'debug' command for debugging daemon internals.

 - Guestfish recipes.

 - Many bugs fixed (note: including a data corruptor that affected
   FileOut transfers, so upgrading is recommended).
