  • KVM images are now using the raw format (instead of qcow2)
  • Xen 3/4 and XVA images are using ext4 for the root filesystem (instead of ext3)
  • We are now explicitly setting /etc/adjtime and /etc/localtime to UTC. EL-based distros default to LOCAL time for the hardware clock and default to US/Eastern for the timezone.

More info on the disk format changes.
