What’s new for libguestfs

The libguestfs team have been busy adding features over the past few weeks. Here is a quick round-up.

  • Writing to Windows Registry files. We haven’t quite got this feature working yet, but we intend that you’ll be able to “shell into” a Windows Registry and change things:
     $ hivexsh SOFTWARE
      
      Welcome to hivexsh, the hivex interactive shell for examining
      Windows Registry binary hive files.
      
      Type: 'help' for help summary
            'quit' to quit the shell
      
      SOFTWARE\> ls
      ATI Technologies
      Classes
      Clients
      Intel
      Microsoft
      ODBC
      Policies
      RegisteredApplications
      Sonic
      Wow6432Node
      SOFTWARE\> cd \Microsoft\Windows\TabletPC\TabSetup
      SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\TabletPC\TabSetup> ls
      SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\TabletPC\TabSetup> lsval
      "TabletSetup"=dword:00000000"
      SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\TabletPC\TabSetup> cd ..
      SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\TabletPC> ls
      Snipping Tool
      TabSetup
    
  • Rename LVs and VGs. (Guymon’s incredibly convoluted description of how to do this when you don’t have libguestfs inspired me to add lvrename and vgrename commands).
  • C# bindings. This doesn’t mean you can use libguestfs on Windows, but it does mean you can use libguestfs from Mono/Linux.
  • Indian language support. We received Punjabi, Telegu and Oriya translations all at once from the Fedora L10N project so now you can display guestfish in elegant cursive script. “Run a command from the guest filesystem” is “ਗਿਸਟ ਫਾਇਲ-ਸਿਸਟਮ ਤੋਂ ਕਮਾਂਡ ਚਲਾਓ” in Punjabi – how beautiful. The L10N guys work hard doing a pretty thankless job and don’t seem to get much credit for what they do, so thanks guys (and gals).
