[Libvirt-announce] ANNOUNCE: libvirt-sandbox "Sahara Desert" release 0.5.0

I pleased to announce the a new public release of libvirt-sandbox,
version 0.5.0, 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

This release focused on major feature development.

Changed in this release:

 - Switch to use persistent libvirt configuration files for
   service sandboxes
 - Store service configs in /etc/libvirt-sandbox/services/$NAME/
   instead of /etc/libvirt-sandbox/services/$NAME.sandbox to
   allow storage of multiple files per sandbox
 - Add a new 'virt-sandbox-service upgrade NAME' command,
   to be run by admin for all existing service sandboxes to
   upgrade their configuration to be compatible with the new
 - Remove start, stop, list commands from virt-sandbox-service,
   with recomendation to use start, destroy & list commands in
   virsh instead.
 - Remove duplicate -u option in man page
 - Update man page examples
 - Stop generating a UNIT_sandbox.target unit, instead letting
   the sandbox unit tie into multi-user.target as normal
 - Remove unimplemented APIs for graphical sandboxes, to be
   re-added at a later date when actually functional
 - Add padding to public structs, to facilitate preservation
   of public ABI compatibility in future
 - Add note about default libvirt URIs in man page
 - Fix cloning of sandboxes

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release
