  So as planned, I tagged the release in git and pushed signed tarball and
rpms to the usual place:


I also pushed the associated python release for 1.3.0 though there was no
actual code change except numbering:


The bump in version minor number comes from the addition of the administration
API which nearly made it in 1.2.17 in the summer but was postponed since. That
is backed up by serious improvement in virtio support and logging. As usual
that release carries a sigificant amount of fixes and smaller improvements too:

  So thanks everybody for helping with this release, be it with patches, ideas,
reports, documentation, etc...

  As a reminder next release supposedly 1.3.1 will come mid-January due to the
end of year slowdown, and then 1.3.2 at the end or February.

   Enjoy !
