Changelog 1.5:


 - The default for log output enabled via the '-d' command line switch is now
   standard error rather than a file. You can obtain the previous behaviour
   using the '-D' command line switch to specify a file to send the logging to.
 - QEMU now uses poll rather than select, and thus does not have any
   restriction on the number of open file descriptors.

System emulation

 Device emulation


   - The --audio-card-list configure option is not used anymore. Instead, you
     can modify default-configs/pci.mak (for the PCI soundcards AC97, HDA and
     ES1370) and default-configs/sound.mak (for the ISA soundcards) before
     running "make".
   - The "shortcut" -soundhw option is now available for all targets that have
     a PCI bus.

  Device assignment

   - VFIO supports primary VGA passthrough using the experimental "x-vga=on"
     option. The following devices seem to work: Nvidia 8400gs, 73001e, NVS290;
     ATI/AMD Radeon HD5450 and HD7850.
   - VFIO devices support the bootindex= property to override the default boot
     order for assigned PCI devices.


   - Experimental support for USB 3.0 streams, both in the nec-usb-xhci
     controller and in the usb-uas USB-attached SCSI device emulation.
   - USB device passthrough has been rewritten to use libusb. For Linux, the
     two backends can be compiled in a single QEMU executable (if libusb is
     enabled, usb-host-linux will be the legacy implementation, usb-host will
     be the libusb-based one; if libusb is disabled, usb-host will be the
     legacy implementation). For BSD, it has to be chosen at configure time
     using --enable/disable-libusb (the default is to use libusb if it is
     available, otherwise use the legacy implementation).


   - QEMU can now emulate the VMware PVSCSI device using "-device pvscsi".
   - QEMU can now use tcm_vhost, a virtio-scsi device model based on the
     Linux-iSCSI implementation of SCSI.

  Network cards

   - QEMU can now emulate the VMware paravirtualized network card using
     "-device vmxnet3".


  - This release has initial support of KVM for the ARM architecture.
    This requires a 3.9 or better Linux kernel and a Cortex-A15 CPU.
  - The Zynq board provides a SD host controller interface.
  - The PCI controller model for VersatilePB and Realview boards has been
    significantly improved in functionality (including MMIO BAR support and
    a correct PCI IRQ mapping). Note that Linux kernels currently do not take
    advantage of this; however we autodetect kernels that expect the behaviour
    of an old broken QEMU and fall back to that. (The old IRQ behaviour can
    be forced with "-global versatile_pci.broken-irq-mapping=1" if absolutely
  - Incorrect handling of the SRS instruction in Thumb mode has been fixed.
  - Performance of TCG emulation of ARM targets is improved over previous
  - Migration and vm save/load now works correctly on the vexpress-a15 and
    vexpress-a9 models.


  - Various improvements to TCG code generation
  - KVM synchronizes more state
  - Fix a few issues that blocked Mac OS X from working (still not 100% there
  - Refactoring and improvement of soft mmu emulation for book3s
  - Implement various new instructions for ISA 2.05 and ISA 2.06 compatibility
    (-cpu POWER7)
  - Implement support for KVM based e500 family watchdog


  - Various accuracy fixes for device emulation
  - Faster I/O hypercalls
  - Add firmware to boot from virtio-ccw disks
  - Guest kernel panics are notified to the host


  - Improve sun4u interrupt mapping, so that multiple PCI devices can be used


  - x86 supports emulation of a TPM (Trusted Platform Module) on machines
    that have a hardware TPM
  - Various speedups in TCG emulation of x86
  - The iPXE ROMs that are distributed with QEMU support EFI
  - TCG supports the SSE4.1, SSE4.2, PCLMULQDQ, AES-NI, BMI and ADX extensions.
  - A paravirtual device is included that lets the guest notifies kernel
    panics to the host.
  - CPU hot-add support with cpu-add QMP command. More details
  - new CPU properties "feature-words" and "filtered-features" to allow
    introspection of supported and not supported CPU features.
   - For reference and examples of how the new properties can be used by
     libvirt and other components, see:


  - QEMU now generates a DEVICE_DELETED event when the guest acknowledges
    a device hot-unplug operation.
  - Much better handling for non-ASCII codepoints in JSON strings

 Character devices

  - Character devices gained support for flow control. More details in
  - All kinds of character devices can now be hot-plugged. Character device
    hotplug is also supported from the "human" monitor.

 Block devices

  - IDE and SCSI disks always have the ability to issue "discard" (aka TRIM or
    UNMAP) commands. However, by default "discard" commands are silently
    ignored as they can cause performance degradation and fragmentation.
    To enable them, the "-drive" option now supports a "discard" suboption;
    the default value is "ignore" (or its synonym "off"), and the other valid
    value is "unmap" (or "on").
  - Sheepdog drives can also be specified with URIs.
  - iSCSI disks support on-line resizing using block_resize. Similar to block
    devices, the resize has to be done first outside QEMU.
  - Various performance improvements in qcow2 internal snapshots (savevm).
  - The NBD backend has improved latency.
  - qemu-nbd can now skip image format probing using the -f/--format
    command-line option.
  - VHDX (MS Hyper-V) image format has initial read-only support. Dynamic and
    fixed sized disks are supported, but not differencing images (e.g. VHDX
    images with a backing file). Read-only is strictly enforced, and the
    'readonly=on' option must be used for any VHDX images.
  - Secure Shell (ssh) support. Access remote disks over ssh using
    qemu -drive file=ssh://host/path/to/file

 Live Migration

  - Further improvements in throughput (up to +130%: 4.2 Gbps in 1.5 vs
    1.8 Gbps in 1.4) and latency.

 User interface

  - QEMU now provides a GTK+ interface. The interface uses the VTE library
    to provide better terminal emulation for serial consoles and the monitor.
  - A new VNC extension has been added to communicate LED state changes for
    the keyboard.


  - Websocket connections can now be encrypted with TLS.

User-mode emulation

 - Threaded programs are now more stable, though still experimental.

Guest agent

 - New commands in qemu-ga let the host put CPUs online/offline with help
   from the guest OS (Linux only)
 - Low impact CVE-2013-2007 ("qemu: guest agent creates files with insecure
   permissions in daemon mode") is fixed.
  - Note for guest administrators: unix domain sockets, logfiles etc.
    created by previous versions of qemu-ga do not have their file mode
    bits reset by this change; only newly created files have mode 0600
    when daemonizing. Please delete your old files or change their
    permissions manually when upgrading.
  - The guest-file-open QMP command continues to create files with mode
    0666 for compatibility reasons.

Host support
 - QEMU is now a lot faster on Windows hosts than in previous versions
 - libcacard has been ported to Windows.

 Known issues

  - The GTK+ backend does not compile on BSD systems (including Mac OS X).
    This will likely be fixed in a later stable update.
