113 114
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

132 133 134

	  unless the image property USE_DEFAULT_UNATTEND is defined.

149
	  those that should be propagated to the user through the monitoring
150 151 152
	  mechanism. Don't allow internal configuration options get revealed to

	  Fedora and Ubuntu when the USERS image property is missing.

	  kernel and the initrd in the helper VM.
159 160 161
	* 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.
162

163 164 165 166
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
167 168
	* HELPER: Make sure EnforcePersonality is the last task that runs
	  before UmountImage. Doing this ensures that user-injected files never
169
	  get overwritten by any other configuration task.
170

171 172 173 174 175 176

	  when running.

	* Abandon timelimit command in favor of timeout
177
	* Add support for null image backend type. This back-end type can be

	  copying an image to it.
180 181
	* HELPER: Add a new progress monitoring mechanism

182

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.
200
