Tool: Virtual Machine Manager 0.5.0

The Virtual Machine Manager (virt-manager for short) is a desktop application for managing virtual machines. Since it uses libvirt, it is capable of managing machines from any hypervisor supported by libvirt. Xen is the current primary target. The application's views provide summaries and detailed statistics on performance and resource utilization. A wizard facilitates creation of new guest domains, both para-virtualized and fully-virtualized. Console access is enabled either to a text based serial console or fully graphical access via an embedded VNC client.

This release introduces the ability to manage multiple remote machines, using either SSH+public keys or TLS+x509 certificates to connect and authenticate. The main user interface is re-worked to show multiple hosts in a tree view, remembering connections across restarts. The guest VNC console implementation has been replaced with the GTK-VNC widget for greatly improved performance and increased feature set. Other miscellaneous bugfixes and feature enhancements are also included.
