------- Comment From email@example.com 2009-09-22 11:16 EDT-------
This is the most recent release. We were hoping to push a newer release into Fedora, but we didn't have the completed feature set we wanted. So 0.5.6-2 is the newest version.
Fixed in 'libvirt-cim-0.5.6-2.el6', included in compose 'RHEL6.0-20091029.0'.
Moving to ON_QA.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
solution does not work for you.
