1. What's Included in This Update

The new packages for Parallels Server Bare Metal 5.0 provide user-level tool
fixes for managing EZ templates and Containers.

2. Problem Description

The new packages introduce the following feature:

- The ability to create and manage Containers based on the Fedora 17 template.

This update contains also fixes for the following issues:

- It was impossible to create caches for the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2
  template.  (#PCLIN-30902)

- An incorrect gateway was set for a Windows virtual machine with two virtual
  network adapters. (#PSBM-13506)

- An attempt to back up a Container using Parallels SDK could fail under certain
  conditions. (#PSBM-12868)

- The dispatcher component could crash under certain conditions. (#PSBM-13150)

- Stopping a virtual machine with a high uptime could cause it to hang in the
  "stopping" state. (#PSBM-11748)

- Network connection names in a virtual machine with Windows Server 2008 R2 
  could change after reboot. (#PSBM-13153)

- The 'pmigrate' command required the destination path to the resulting virtual
  machine to be specified during migration. (#PSBM-13441)

All Parallels Server Bare Metal 5.0 users are advised to update their tools packages.

3. Affected Components

 - 'parallels-server' is a set of binaries for managing virtual machines.

 - 'vztt' is a set of tools used to manage Container's templates.

 - 'vzctcalc' is a tool for calculating the disk and memory usage of Containers.

 - 'libvznbdmig' is a set of routines that implement the migration of Containers
   to virtual machines.

 - 'vzpkgenv*' and 'vzpkgenv*x64' are minimal 'openSUSE/Debian/Fedora'-like
   environments for executing the Parallels version of the respective package
   manager.
