2012-12-03, v0.7

	  more than 1 repositories to retrieve packages from.

	* Add a version check in snf-image-update-helper. After the creation
	  of the helper, check if the versions of snf-image-{host,helper} match
	* Remove the HELPER_PKG variable from common.sh. The helper package by
	  default should get downloaded from a repo using
	  snf-image-update-helper. You can still install a package from the

	  VM

127 128 129

	  unless the image property USE_DEFAULT_UNATTEND is defined.

143
	* Separate the error messages that should be logged by the system from
144
	  those that should be propagated to the user through the monitoring
145 146 147
	  mechanism. Don't allow internal configuration options get revealed to

	  kernel and the initrd in the helper VM.
154 155 156
	* Use environmental 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.
157

158 159 160 161
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
162 163
	* HELPER: Make sure EnforcePersonality is the last task that runs
	  before UmountImage. Doing this ensures that user-injected files never
164
	  get overwritten by any other configuration task.
165

166 167 168 169 170 171

	  when running.
	* Make the name of image properties case insensitive
	* Abandon timelimit command in favor of timeout
172
	* Add support for null image backend type. This back-end type can be
173 174
	  used if we want snf-image to configure the VM disk without first
	  copying an image to it.
175 176
	* HELPER: Add a new progress monitoring mechanism

177

2012-05-17, v0.4

	  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.
195
	* Add mechanism for overwriting the helper's Unattend.xml file
196 197 198 199

203 204 205
