I am pleased to announce that a new release of the libvirt-glib package,
version 0.2.2, is now available from


The packages are GPG signed with

    Key fingerprint: DAF3 A6FD B26B 6291 2D0E  8E3F BE86 EBB4 1510 4FDF (4096R)

Changes in this release:

 - Add API for getting interface MAC address
 - Simplify implementation of object listing APIs
 - Fix memory leaks of virConnect objects
 - Port to use GTask instead of GSimpleAsyncResult
 - Add API to get list of physical network interfaces
 - Add API to get list of virtual networks
 - Add API to get DHCP address of virtual networks
 - Avoid overwriting filesystem type when setting format
 - Include XML data for tests in dist
 - Add support for UNIX chardev sources
 - Fix test linking on platforms with strict linker deps
 - Add ability to set video ram + vgamem

libvirt-glib comprises three distinct libraries:

   - libvirt-glib    - Integrate with the GLib event loop and error handling
   - libvirt-gconfig - Representation of libvirt XML documents as GObjects
   - libvirt-gobject - Mapping of libvirt APIs into the GObject type system

NB: While libvirt aims to be API/ABI stable forever, with libvirt-glib
we are not currently guaranteeing that libvirt-glib libraries are
permanently API/ABI stable. That said we do not expect to break the
API/ABI for the forseeable future and will always strive avoid it.

Follow up comments about libvirt-glib should be directed to the regular
libvir-list at redhat.com development list.

Thanks to all the people involved in contributing to this release.
