the plans for the next release. A
 
"feature freeze on the 22nd" and a
 
"target for next release is Friday 29th".
 
 
 
Work will continue on
 
"reviewing and adding OpenNebula<ref>http://www.opennebula.org/</ref>/Power<ref>http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/power/software/virtualization/</ref> drivers and try to get the
 
NPIV<ref>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NPIV</ref>, <code>netcf</code><ref>https://fedorahosted.org/netcf/</ref> and secure migration patches in. It's likely not
 
everything will make the release cut but we can try !"
 
 
 
"So far we have mostly a lot of bug fixes and VirtualBox<ref>http://www.virtualbox.org/</ref> driver updates commited since 0.6.3."

patches for an idea posted in April. Daniel added a public API for converting
 
back and forth between the native hypervisor configurations and {{package|libvirt}} XML representations<ref>http://libvirt.org/formatdomain.html</ref>.
 
 
 
Daniel's changes enable
 
Xen guest conversion "to/from both XM config format ({{filename|/etc/xen}} files), and the SEXPR format used by XenD".
 
"For QEMU, it implemnets export of domain XML into the
 
QEMU argv format" and conversion from QEMU argv into domain XML.
 
 
 
"With this available, it
 
makes it very easy for people using QEMU to switch over to using <code>libvirt
 
for</code> management."
