     I'm pleased to announce release 0.8.0 of Oz.  Oz is a program for
doing automated installation of guest operating systems with limited
input from the user.
     Release 0.8.0 is a (long overdue) bugfix and feature release for
Oz.  Some of the highlights between Oz 0.7.0 and 0.8.0 are:

     - Optional virtualenv make target
     - Conversion of unittests to py.test
     - Replace mkisofs with genisoimage
     - Debian package
     - Ability to change the root password for Debian installs
     - Add unittests for ozutil
     - Add some unittests for the Guest object
     - SSH tunnel (with SSL vhost) support for local repositories
(mostly useful for imagefactory)
     - Add a new manpage for oz-examples
     - Make the output filename configurable with a command-line
option to oz-install
     - Monitor both network and disk activity when looking for guest activity
     - Support for installing Ubuntu 11.10
     - Support for SSL certificates for repositories
     - Support for an optional version in the TDL
     - Support for installling Mandrake 9.1, 9.2, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2
     - Support for installing Mandriva 2006.0, 2007.0, 2008.0
     - Support for Ubuntu customization
     - Support for installing RHEL 6.2

     A tarball of this release is available, as well as packages for
Fedora-16.  Instructions on how to get and use Oz are available at

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

     Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release through bug
reports, patches, and suggestions for improvement.
