This update for libcontainers-common fixes the following issues:

  • Add registries warning to registries.conf. (bsc#1165917)
  • Add `rootless_storage_path` directive to storage.conf. (bsc#1165917)
  • Clean up various imports primarily so that imports of packages that aren't in the standard library are all in one section. (bsc#1165917)
  • copy.Image(): select the CopySystemImage image using the source context. (bsc#1165917)
  • docker: handle http 429 status codes. (bsc#1165917)
  • allow for .dockercfg files to reside in non-home directories. (bsc#1165917)
  • Handling of the libpod.conf configuration file has seen major changes. Most significantly, rootless users will no longer automatically receive a complete configuration file when they first use Podman, and will instead only receive differences from the global configuration. (bsc#1165917)
  • Initial support for the CNI DNS plugin, which allows containers to resolve the IPs of other containers via DNS name, has been added. (bsc#1165917)
  • Podman now supports anonymous named volumes, created by specifying only a destination to the -v flag to the podman create and podman run commands. (bsc#1165917)
  • Named volumes now support uid and gid options in --opt o=... to set UID and GID of the created volume. (bsc#1165917)
  • overlay: allow storing images with more than 127 layers. (bsc#1165917)
  • Lazy initialize the layer store. (bsc#1165917)
  • Add a default registries.d configuration file, used to specify images. (bsc#1165917)
