I pleased to announce the a new public release of libvirt-sandbox,
version 0.1.1, is now available for download


The packages are GPG signed with

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

The libvirt-sandbox package provides an API layer on top of libvirt-gobject
which facilitates the cration of application sandboxes using virtualization
technology. An application sandbox is a virtual machine or container that
runs a single application binary, directly from the host OS filesystem.
In other words there is no separate guest operating system install to build
or manager.

At this point in time libvirt-sandbox can create sandboxes using either LXC
or KVM, and should in theory be extendable to any libvirt driver. This
release has focused entirely on improving the virt-sandbox-service tool

Changed in this release:

 - Fix typos in POD docs for some classes
 - Only depend on libvirt-daemon-{kvm,qemu,lxc}, not
   full libvirt RPM.
 - Switch to YUM for extracting package file list
 - Bind mount whole of /var rather than only some subdirs
 - Validate unit files exist before creating sandbox
 - Fixes to population of files in /etc and /var
 - Finish 'clone' command for copying sandboxes
 - Populate /etc/machine-id file
 - Fix systemd dependancies for bulk start/stop of containers
 - Symlink container journal directory into host filesystem
 - Rename sandbox.target to multi-user.target
 - Fix attachment to running containers

Thanks to Dan Walsh for basically doing all the work in this release
