The oVirt Project is pleased to announce the availability of oVirt 4.1.6 release, as of September 18th, 2017

This update is the sixth in a series of stabilization updates to the 4.1 series.
4.1.6 brings 23 enhancements and 100 bugfixes,
including 53 high or urgent severity fixes, on top of oVirt 4.1 series

Starting from 4.1.5 oVirt supports libgfapi [5]. Using libgfapi provides a real performance boost for ovirt when using GlusterFS .
Due  to a known issue [6], using this will break live storage migration.  This is expected to be fixed soon. If you do not use live storage  migration you can give it a try. Use [7] for more details on how to  enable it.

This release is available now for:
* Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4 or later
* CentOS Linux (or similar) 7.4 or later

This release supports Hypervisor Hosts running:
* Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4 or later
* CentOS Linux (or similar) 7.4 or later
* oVirt Node 4.1

See the release notes[3] for installation / upgrade instructions and
a list of new features and bugs fixed.

- oVirt Appliance is already available
- oVirt Live and oVirt Node are not yet available, waiting for CentOS to
publish qemu-kvm-ev 2.9.0 before composing ISOs based on CentOS 7.4.
Will be published in [4] when ready.
