     I'm pleased to announce release 0.4.0 of Oz.  Oz is a program for doing
automated installation of guest operating systems with limited input from the
     Release 0.4.0 is a bugfix and feature release for Oz.  Some of the
highlights between Oz 0.3.0 and 0.4.0 are:

- Automatic detection/use of cached JEOS images (the previous method required
the user of the oz libraries to detect whether the image was cached or not)
- Fixes to make Debian installs work for both x86_64 and i386
- Honor user-provided automatic installation files better, by not doing
- Use pyparted to generate partitions on newly created disks (if necessary)
- Add support for Fedora 15
- Add the ability to supply an initial root/Administrator password to the
- Abort installs after 5 minutes of disk inactivity
- Use M2Crypto to generate SSH keys (if necessary)
- Some pydoc documentation (more of this to come in the future)
- Support for Ubuntu 11.04
- Support for RHEL-6.1

More documentation on Oz (including links on how to obtain it) is available
here: http://aeolusproject.org/oz.html

For this release, Fedora 14 and RHEL-6 packages are available.  Note that I
have stopped providing Fedora 13 packages, since that distribution is (or
will be) out of support.  Also note that to install the RHEL-6
packages, you must be running RHEL-6.1 or later.

If you have any questions or comments about Oz, please feel free to contact
aeolus-devel at lists.fedorahosted.org or me (clalance at redhat.com) directly.
