Submission + - LXC 1.0 has been released (linuxcontainers.org)

An anonymous reader writes: After 10 months of development, the Linux container management tool LXC has released its "production ready" 1.0 version. LXC is a set of userspace tools and libraries using the kernel namespaces and other security features to run a full Linux system in a "container".

It is similar to OpenVZ, Linux-Vserver, ... but doesn't require any kernel patches, instead using only features that have been merged into the mainline Linux kernel.

Highlights for this major release include a stable API with bindings for Go, Lua, Python3 and Ruby, support for entirely unprivileged containers (using the fairly new user namespaces), support for a handful of backingstores, a reworked set of tools and improved documentation.
