2012-12-03, v0.7

	  more than 1 repositories to retrieve packages from.

	  snf-image-update-helper. You can still install a package from the

171 172 173

	  kernel and the initrd in the helper VM.
198 199 200
	* Use environment variables instead of input options to pass sensitive
	  data to pithcat. This is needed because when pithcat is running,
	  every user can see the program's command line by using ps.
201

202 203 204 205
2012-09-15, v0.6
	* Fix import and export scripts
	* Add new config_url os parameter. This can be used by snf-image to
	  download a json file that contains the value for other os parameters
206 207
	* HELPER: Make sure EnforcePersonality is the last task that runs
	  before UmountImage. Doing this ensures that user-injected files never
208
	  get overwritten by any other configuration task.
209

210 211 212 213 214 215

216

	  programm will be used if --with-progress-monitor flag is used in
	  configure or if PROGRESS_MONITOR variable in the defaults file has a
	  non-empty value
	* Remove --enable-pithos-backend option in configure. This will be
	  detected at runtime
	* Create package list in snf-update-helper every time debootstrap is
	  performed. If a cache file is found, snf-update-helper will use this
	  list to determine if it is OK to use this cache file or not.
