This release includes:

 - Allow various auth types for libvirt connections (PolicyKit, SASL, ...)
 - New virt-clone option --auto-clone: generates all needed input.
 - Option to specify network device model via virt-install --network
     (Guido Gunther)
 - New virt-install option --virt-type for specifying hypervisor type
     (kvm, qemu). --accelerate is now the default behavior: To provision a
     plain qemu VM on a KVM enabled host, use '--virt-type qemu'
 - OVF input support for virt-convert
 - Many bug fixes and improvements

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this release through testing,
bug reporting, submitting patches, and otherwise sending in feedback!
