ANNOUNCE: virt-viewer version 9.0 released

Posted: May 1st, 2020 | Filed under: Fedora, libvirt, Virt Tools | Tags: | 2 Comments »

I am happy to announce a new bugfix release of virt-viewer 9.0 (gpg), including experimental Windows installers for Win x86 MSI (gpg) and Win x64 MSI (gpg).

Signatures are created with key DAF3 A6FD B26B 6291 2D0E 8E3F BE86 EBB4 1510 4FDF (4096R)

With this release the project has moved over to use GitLab for its hosting needs instead of Pagure. Instead of sending patches to the old mailing list, we have adopted modern best practices and now welcome contributions as merge requests, from where they undergo automated CI testing of the build. Bug reports directed towards upstream maintainers, should also be filed at the GitLab project now instead of the Red Hat Bugzilla

All historical releases are available from:

http://virt-manager.org/download/

Changes in this release include:

  • Project moved to https://gitlab.com/virt-viewer/virt-viewer
  • Allow toggling shared clipboard in remote-viewer
  • Fix handling when initial spice connection fails
  • Fix check for govirt library
  • Add bash completion of cli args
  • Improve errors in file transfer dialog
  • Fix ovirt foreign menu storage domains query
  • Prefer TLS certs from oVirt instead of CLI
  • Improve USB device cleanup when Ctrl-C is used
  • Remember monitor mappings across restarts
  • Add a default file extension to screenshots
  • Updated translations
  • Fix misc memory leaks

  1. Hello,
    what about translations – on zanata (in decommission) they were locked (thus 9.0 released with incomplete translations). What is status of moving to new fedora weblate (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/L10N_Move_to_Weblate) please?
    Thanks

      Moving to weblate is work in progress, but don’t have an eta due to problems with the weblate client tools
