Libvirt is a C toolkit to interact with the virtualization capabilities
of recent versions of Linux (and other OSes). The library aims at providing
a long term stable C API for different virtualization mechanisms. It currently
supports QEMU, KVM, XEN, OpenVZ, LXC, and VirtualBox.
This package contains the header files and static libraries which are
needed for developing the applications with libvirt.

libvirt (1.3.1-1ubuntu10) xenial; urgency=medium
* d/p/u/virt-aa-helper-apparmor-allow-usr-share-AAVMF-too.patch: Allow
access to /usr/share/AAVMF/** and /usr/share/qemu-efi/** for aarch64 UEFI.
(LP: #1538882)
2016-04-07 - Serge Hallyn <>
libvirt (1.3.1-1ubuntu9) xenial; urgency=medium
* Remove the tasks limit on libvirt-bin service (LP: #1567381)
This should be un-done when it is properly fixed in the code so
that virtual machines are started in their own pids cgroup.
2016-03-11 - Serge Hallyn <>
libvirt (1.3.1-1ubuntu8) xenial; urgency=medium
* d/p/u/virt-aa-helper-add-guest-agent-rule.patch: this actually solves
the qemu guest agent problem for rhel7 vms for me.  (LP: #1393842)
Also drop the mknod rule which isn't needed.
* d/apparmor/usr.lib.libvirt.virt-aa-helper: add permission to read under
/var/run.  This is needed for some openvswitch info. (LP: #1513367)
2016-03-10 - Serge Hallyn <>
libvirt (1.3.1-1ubuntu7) xenial; urgency=medium
* zfs support (LP: #1553023)
- Cherrypick upstream patches to support zfs
- debian/rules: build with zfs support
- debian/control: add zfs as build-dep
* d/p/u/virt-aa-helper-no-explicity-deny-for-basefiles.patch: don't mark
readonly files with an explicity deny only because the xml marks it
as reasonly. (LP: #1554031)
* fix typo in virt-aa-helper helptext
* fix d/p/u/preup-virt-aa-helper-better-write-denials-handling.patch to
not overwrite const memory.
2016-03-09 - Serge Hallyn <>
libvirt (1.3.1-1ubuntu6) xenial; urgency=medium
* d/apparmor/libvirt-qemu: generalize the qemu-block-extra libs line.
(LP: #1554761)
* d/p/ubuntu/virt-aa-helper-add-mknod-for-guest-agent.patch: add mknod
capability if there is a qemu guest agent. (LP: #1393842)
2016-03-09 - Stefan Bader <>
libvirt (1.3.1-1ubuntu5) xenial; urgency=low
* Added d/p/ubuntu/preup-virt-aa-helper-better-write-denials-handling.patch
and refreshed d/p/ubuntu/9034-complete-9p-support accordingly.
* Added d/p/ubuntu/additional-libvirt-guest-tweaks.patch to fix default
URI detection when running in a Xen control domain. Also change the
default config to do parallel shutdown requests (max. 10) and reduce the
timeout to 2 minutes.
2016-03-01 - Stefan Bader <>
libvirt (1.3.1-1ubuntu4) xenial; urgency=low
* d/libvirt-bin.virtlockd.init: Replace by the version I had already
prepared and was tested (LP: #1547208).
* d/libvirt-bin.virtlogd.init: Fix up some left-over references to
* d/control: Add provides libvirt-daemon for libvirt-bin (LP: #1551643)
2016-02-29 - James Page <>
libvirt (1.3.1-1ubuntu3) xenial; urgency=medium
* d/libvirt-bin.virtlockd.init: Re-write based on virtlogd init script
as upstream provided version is not compatible with Ubuntu/Debian.
2016-02-17 - Matthias Klose <>
libvirt (1.3.1-1ubuntu2) xenial; urgency=medium
* No-change rebuild for gnutls transition.
