I've just pushed a significant UI change to virt-manager. The per-VM details
and console windows are now merged into a single tabbed window. The console
is the primary tab, and overview/details tabs are as before. The goal is to
reduce the number of windows on the desktop because with large numbers of
VMs having two windows per VM was non-scalable. Basically we want at most
the one main window, and then 1 window per hypervisor connection and 1
window per virtual machine.
I expect we'll iterate over this UI change to tweak a few more things before
the next release. In particular wrt to fullscreen mode.
Eventually we'll hook up serial/parallel ports as additional tabs on the
VM window too, so everything's in one place.

Snapshots are not an easy thing to provide unless you constrain which kind
of storage a guest is allowed to use. I've no plans to work on this in the
near future because there's more important things which are easier first.
