Libvirt 0.5.0

This may be old news for some but libvirt 0.5.0 is now available. As usual, the bug fixes and improvements are spread throughout the library. There looks to be some interesting new features in the Qemu/KVM driver. Namely, "domain lifecycle event support" and "migration support".

The domain life cycle support includes Python bindings according to the change log whereas nothing is mentioned about Python support regarding the migration support for Qemu/KVM. Also, the domain life cycle support mentions only Qemu and Xen. I haven't actually tried using 0.5.0 yet but if I find anything else interesting to write about I will.
