This release includes:

  - New virt-clone option --original-xml, allows cloning a guest from
      an xml file, rather than require an existing, defined guest.
  - New virt-install option --import, allows creating a guest from an
      existing disk image, bypassing any OS install phase.
  - New virt-install option --host-device, for connecting a physical
      host device to the guest.
  - Allow specifying 'cache' value via virt-install's --disk options
      (Ben Kochie)
  - New virt-install option --nonetworks (John Levon)
  - Lots of backend cleanups and documentation improvements.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this release through testing,
bug reporting, submitting patches, and otherwise sending in feedback!
