4.224. perl-Sys-Virt

An updated perl-Sys-Virt package that fixes one bug and adds one enhancement is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The perl-Sys-Virt package provides application programming interfaces (APIs) for managing virtual machines from Perl, using the libvirt library.

Bug Fix

Prior to this update, the flags argument was hardcoded to value 0 in virDomainGetXMLDesc. As a result, security sensitive domain information was not accessible using the libvirt perl bindings. This update adds the flags parameter to all get_xml_description methods. Now, the security sensitive domain information can be obtained as expected.


The Sys::Virt module has been updated to provide support for the new APIs introduced between version 0.8.7 and 0.9.3 of the libvirt library.
All users of perl-Sys-Virt are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug and adds this enhancement.
