Hello, On behalf of the QEMU Team, I'd like to announce the availability of the QEMU 2.6.0 release. This release contains 2400+ commits from 186 authors. You can grab the tarball from our download page here: http://wiki.qemu.org/Download The full list of changes are available at: http://wiki.qemu.org/ChangeLog/2.6 Highlights include: * Headless support for OpenGL-capable displays via Virgil/virtio-gpu are now available via Spice client. * virtio performance improvements through vring access optimizations * Support for IPMI through internally emulated BMC or an external BMC interface * PCIe multi-root support via pxb-pcie bridge, allowing devices to be exposed to guest on specifically-defined NUMA nodes * Post-copy migration now officially supported * TLS support for character devices (e.g. isa-serial port) exposed over TCP sockets * VFIO passthrough support for AMD XGBE 10Gb NIC * Block device throttling now supports separate controls for burst IOPS over a specified interval * Image support for LUKSv1, and TLS and authentication support for various remote disk protocols (iSCSI, NBD, RBD, ...) * New default tracing backend, and command-line/wildcard support for enabling specific traces * ARM: Raspberry Pi 2 emulation support via new raspi2 machine * ARM: virt machine now supports QEMU-signalled powerdown, and RAM limit increased from 30GB to 255GB * ARM: new palmetto-bmc machine type implementing ASPEED AST2400 SoC * MIPS: support for FPU and SIMD instructions in KVM guests * PowerPC: improved migration and serial port support for g3beige and mac99 machines * PowerPC: GDB stub support for VSX instruction set * PowerPC: pseries now exposes XHCI USB by default * s390: CPU hotplug support, and PCI/virtio-scsi improvements * Tricore: support for FPU instructions, context management, and illegal opcode and opd traps * x86: KVM and TCG emulation support for PKU memory protection feature of newer Intel CPUs within guest * x86: resume from suspend support for Q35 machine type * x86: support for older Windows guest (XP/2003) on Q35 machine type * and lots more... Thank you to everyone involved!
