How it works...

In step 1, we list all snapshots on the host OS. We then delete the latest snapshot, specifying its name, in step 2. In step 3, we verify that the snapshot has been indeed deleted. Finally, in step 4, we delete the latest image by specifying the --current flag.

Please note that in order to delete or restore an external snapshot a libvirt version newer than 1.2.2 is required. If your Linux distribution does not provide a newer version in its repositories, you will have to compile libvirt from source.
