The most recent version of virt-manager (1.0.0) is available in deb packages from ppa:jacob/virtualisation. See https://launchpad.net/~jacob/+archive/virtualisation?field.series_filter=trusty

I'm using virt-manager version 1.0.0 from ppa:jacob/virtualisation with Trusty, and it's working great for me.

I too hope that we can get virt-manager updated to version 1.0.0 in the repository for Trusty.

This won't happen before 14.10.
