Virt-Manager, the GUI-driven virtualization manager that was started by Red Hat about three years ago is out this week with a new update. From the version number, 0.8.1, it may seem like a small update as the previous release was v0.8.0 and it already brought an improved GUI and other advancements, but in fact the new point release is quite significant.

Virt-Manager 0.8.1 delivers a VM migration wizard, enumerates CDROM and bridge devices on remote connections, supports listing multiple graphs in the manager window, supports disabling DHCP and specifying 'routed' type for new virtual networks, supports storage pool source enumeration for LVM/NFS/SCSI, allows changing new VM settings, and there are many other improvements and bug-fixes. The VM migration wizard now makes it very easy to move virtual machines between hosts all from their GTK GUI. The new configurable settings for VMs through virt-manager are for VM ACPI, APIC, clock offset, individual vcpu pinning, and video model (this makes it very easy if you want to switch to vmvga to use the VMware KMS driver).

Screenshots showing off some of the improvements along with more details on the virt-manager 0.8.1 enhancements can be found at Linux-KVM.com.
