I've made a long overdue update to the Perl binding for libvirt, Sys-Virt.


The major changes since last time

 - Fix network create API, and UUID lookups
 - Implement storage pool, storage vol, node device, security model,
   domain events and event loop APIs
 - Improve way constants are exposed to Perl layer
 - Fix horrible memory leak in methods returning a hash
 - Fix integer overflow in APIs using 64-bit ints (aka 'long long')
 - Minimum required libvirt C library for building is 0.6.1

There is comprehensive API documentation available online


As well as a number of example scripts


The master source repository for the Perl binding is now at
