On behalf of the QEMU Team, I'd like to announce the availability of
the QEMU 2.1.0 release. This release contains 2200+ commits from 180


The full list of changes are available at:


Highlights include:

 * Support for memory hotplug on x86 guests
 * Support for pinning memory on host NUMA nodes on x86 guests
 * Basic hot-plug/hot-unplug support for x86 guests using Q35 machine-type
 * Support for TCG-based system emulation on AArch64 (in addition
   KVM-based virtualization)
 * AArch64 SHA and Crypto instruction support.
 * Support for VFIO-based device passthrough on pSeries/PowerKVM guests
 * Migration support for virtio-ccw on s390x guests
 * Improved IOMMU emulation for SPARC guests
 * Full support for USB3 passthrough (including streams).
 * Multi-seat support for GTK+ and SDL 2.0 UIs, and lots of bug fixes.
 * Dedicated threading model for virtio-blk, virtio-blk dataplane, now supports
   almost all features of the block layer including: image formats, POSIX AIO,
   I/O throttling, statistics and error recovery
 * Fixes migration from QEMU 1.7 when certain bridge/CPU combinations are in
   use (see changelog for notes on migration incompatibilities between 2.0
   and 2.1 for certain guest configuations), and new code/tools to detect
   migration issues
 * And lots more...

Thank you to everyone involved!
