Libvirt, a collection of software that provides a convenient way to manage virtual machines and other virtualization functionality, such as storage and network interface management, is now at version 1.0.2.
After releasing the 1.0.1 version a little over a month ago, the developers of Libvirt have now launched a new major version, totaling over 450 changes and other assortments.
“This is a large release, including over 450 commit, with a lot of code refactoring, improvements and a huge set of fixes a lot of them coming from the cleanup of the Coverity reports. Considering the volume of changes let's schedule the next release (probably 1.0.3) for the end of the month of February,” stated one of the Red Hat developers, Daniel Veillard.
