 * block: support for compressed backup images via block jobs
 * block: qemu-img: 'measure' command now supports LUKS images, 'convert'
   command now supports skipping zero'ing of target image
 * block: experimental support for qemu-storage-daemon, which provides access
   to QEMU block-layer/QMP features like blocks jobs or built-in NBD server
   without starting a full VM

   XIVE/XICS interrupt controllers when ic-mode=dual
 * PowerPC: 'powernv' machine can now emulate KVM hardware acceleration to run
   KVM guests while in TCG mode
 * PowerPC: support for file-backed NVDIMMs for persistent memory emulation
