Release of Oz 0.3.0

I'm pleased to announce release 0.3.0 of Oz. Oz is a program for doing automated installation of guest operating systems with limited input from the user.

Release 0.3.0 is mostly a bugfix release for Oz. However, there are also a few minor features included as well. Some of the highlights between Oz 0.2.0 and 0.3.0 are:

  • Add the ability to specify the output directory for screenshots (the default
    is still CWD).

  • Add the ability to specify the bridge to use for installs (the default is still the first libvirt NAT bridge on the system).

  • Nicer error messages from the command-line tools when debugging is off.

  • Add the ability to install Debian 5 and 6.

  • Detect servers that can't possibly work for installing RedHat/Fedora OSs, and fail the install.

  • Allow installs with spaces in the name.

  • Add the ability to install OpenSUSE 11.4.
