[Libguestfs] ANNOUNCE: libguestfs 1.44 released



This is only a small release because I wanted to get something out
before the big refactoring I'm doing this week.  The release notes are
below.

Rich.

RELEASE NOTES FOR LIBGUESTFS 1.44
   Language bindings
       Python 2 support has been dropped.  The minimum version of Python
       required is 3.6.

       Python bindings no longer use deprecated "PyEval_ThreadsInitialized".

       Python bindings now include type hints (Sam Eiderman).

       Erlang bindings now use libei instead of liberl_interface (Sergei
       Golovan).

   Tools
       virt-get-kernel(1) can now find uncompressed kernels (Pino Toscano).

       virt-sysprep(1) now regenerates the guest certificate store when a
       certificate is removed from the guest (Pino Toscano).

       virt-sysprep(1) can now remove IPA enrollment files and Kerberos
       keytabs (Pino Toscano, Christian Heimes and François Cami).

   API
       New APIs

       "cryptsetup-open" and "cryptsetup-close" replace "luks-open", luks-
       open-ro and luks-close.  The new APIs add support for BitLocker
       encryption.

       Other API changes

       "lvm-canonical-lv" no longer produces a noisy error message when called
       with a non-LV parameter.

   Build changes
       C programs using libguestfs can now be compiled against the build
       directory:

        ../libguestfs/run ./configure
        ../libguestfs/run make

       OCaml components are now linked correctly when building in a different
       directory from the source (Geoff Toole).

       GCC LTO is now supported.

       Weblate is now used for localization instead of Zanata (Pino Toscano).

       The dependencies for guestfsd are no longer hard-coded but are now
       generated from the built binary, ensuring that they shouldn't get out
       of synch in future (Hilko Bengen).

   Internals
       lib/guestfs.h was moved to include/guestfs.h in the source.  This is
       not an externally visible change but affected a lot of places inside
       the build system.

   Bugs fixed
       https://bugzilla.redhat.com/1811539
           The virt-diff command doesn't work on windows 2019 image

       https://bugzilla.redhat.com/1384241
           The tar-in command does not allow restoring file capabilities
