libguestfs 1.28 released

The new stable version of libguestfs — a C library and tools for accessing and modifying virtual machine disk images — has been released.

There is one brand new tool, virt-log. And I rewrote the virt-v2v and virt-p2v tools. These tools convert VMware and Xen guests and physical machines, to run on KVM. They are now much faster and better than before.

As well as that there are hundreds of other improvements and bug fixes. For a full list, see the release notes.

Libguestfs 1.28 will be available shortly in Fedora 21, Debian/experimental, RHEL and CentOS 7, and elsewhere.

  1. You are quite prolific which is awesome because I use your tools almost daily. Thank you.

    I can’t seem to find virt-v2v anywhere in the libguestfs-1.28.1 release for RHEL 7 / CentOS 7, is it not included there yet?

      Indeed it is not. If you don’t mind using unsupported software, grab the RHEL 7.2 preview packages.

      Soon we will be releasing a virt-v2v virtual appliance on RHN. This should have happened months ago, but for reasons outside my control it has still not happened. But I am told soon.
