[Qemu-stable] [ANNOUNCE] QEMU 2.5.1 Stable released

User-agent: alot/0.3.6

Hi everyone,

I am pleased to announce that the QEMU v2.5.1 stable release is now
available at:


v2.5.1 is now tagged in the official qemu.git repository,
and the stable-2.5 branch has been updated accordingly:


In addition to the normal array of general bug fixes, this release
includes security fixes/hardening for USB, vmxnet3/e1000/ne2000 NICs,
NIC checksumming, and management consoles via HMP. Users of earlier
releases should upgrade accordingly.

Note: For -M pseries-2.3 PPC guests, migration is now restored between
QEMU 2.3.x and 2.5.1, but migration between 2.5.1 and any versions other
than 2.3.x now require the -machine enforce-config-section=on option.

Thank you to everyone involved!
