QEMU 2.6 released

QEMU 2.6 has been released. In addition to the many improvements provided by the community, here is a list of the new features with most relevance for KVM on z:
  • On z Systems, it is now possible to IPL from virtio-scsi attached disks and disk images.
  • CPU hotplug: CPU hotplugging via command cpu-add now works on z Systems.
  • Postcopy: We made sure that this feature provided by the community is supported on z Systems from the first day after losing its experimental status.
  • The script now works on z Systems.
  • PCI passthrough support continues to see improvements, but is not yet ready for production use.
