  vserver 0.28
  Change log

  1. Enhancements

  1.1. /usr/sbin/vserver --verbose

  The --verbose option was used so we can learn what vserver is doing
  when it setups the IP aliases.

  1.2. New man page vserver.conf.5

  This man page describe the format of the configuration file in

  1.3. Running v_xxx service with the loopback

  The v_xxx service (v_sshd and friends) are provided to help running
  service on the root server without interfering with similar services
  in the virtual servers. The various v_xxx services achieve this by
  starting the corresponding xxx services using chbind to restrict the
  IPs they are allowed to bind.

  Previously, all those services were bound to eth0 only. Now by default
  (unless overridden in /etc/vservices/xxx.conf) the services are bound
  to and eth0.

  This solves for one the problem with ssh X11 port forwarding since ssh
  assumes connections are done on localhost ( and not eth0.

  2. Bug fixes

  2.1. chbind: --ip without parameter

  chbind was improperly parsing its command line and was crashing if the
  option --ip was used without value.

  2.2. Security issue with vserver 0.27

  vserver 0.27 on vs-1.1 kernels was not setting the capability ceiling
  properly, providing vservers with too much power.
