libguestfs — tools for managing virtual machines and disk images — 1.14 has been released. This is a major milestone, both because it has tons of great new features, and because it will be the basis for libguestfs in RHEL 6.3.
I won’t cover all the new features here, not least because the release notes cover everything. Instead here are some highlights:
- New tools virt-alignment-scan, virt-sparsify, and virt-sysprep.
- virt-resize has improvements in compatibility and features.
- Systemtap support.
- virt-cat now supports Windows drive letters and paths.
- Erlang bindings.
- 18 bugs have been official fixed, and many more unofficially.
Update: Rikki Endsley at NetworkWorld wrote a short article about this release.
