Hi all,

I've just released version 0.3.0 of Jitsu[1] in opam. The main new
feature in this version is the ability to have optional backends to
manage unikernels. Previously all backends where compiled in by default,
but this didn't work well as not all backends would be available on
every platform. With this change Jitsu can be installed on OS X again
(with libvirt) and on older Ubuntu's (without xenctrl). 

To make it easier to install Jitsu with a specific backend I've added
virtual packages for jitsu-libxl, jitsu-libvirt and jitsu-xapi in opam.
Backends can also be installed manually and installing multiple backends
will enable all of them.

Changes since the last opam release (v0.2.0):

- Support modular backends (xenctrl, libvirt and xen-api-client). Only
available backends are compiled in by default.
- Add virtual packages for jitsu-libvirt, jitsu-libxl, jitsu-xapi
- Add/fix support for multiple DNS entries per VM
- Update README with links to paper, recent blog posts and new
installation instructions
- Add VERSION file to track version in builds and releases
- Support xenctrl > 0.9.26
- Support xen-api-client > 0.9.8
- Update storage backend to support latest Irmin API (>= 0.10.0)

The full change log is available here [2].
