[Libguestfs] [ANNOUNCE] Stable releases 1.4.1 and 1.2.10, and a note about versions and Fedora releases

Even though the current stable branch is 1.4.x[1] I'm not going to
leave the 1.2.x branch to completely wither.  I will still pull in any
more serious bug fixes into the 1.2.x branch and make an occasional

Therefore I have released 1.4.1 and 1.2.10 which contain a small
number of bug fixes.  If you are using earlier 1.4.x or 1.2.x
versions, and if you simply want a more stable version of libguestfs
with no surprises, then upgrading along the same branch is
recommended.  I still get reports from people using the old 1.0.x
versions, and I would *strongly* recommend upgrading to at least
1.2.10 as nearly 100 bugs have been fixed.

This link shows the changes along the stable-1.2 branch:


and this link shows the same for the stable-1.4 branch:


The upstream branches currently map to Fedora, RHEL and EPEL releases

  Fedora 12    1.2.x (currently 1.2.10)

  RHEL 6.1     undecided, probably rebase to latest 1.2.x or 1.4.x
