Notice: If you are receiving this email is because you are registered in the QEMU mailing list or you posted an entry in the Official OS Support List.

Dear developers, testers and users.

Stuart Brady and I are proud to present you the new QEMU's Official OS Support List 3.0.

This list is based on Wine's Application Database code, modified to apply better to QEMU's requirements, and the code will be posted when all changes are finished.

All valid entries in the old OS Support List have been migrated. Unluckily they appear all as mine, sorry for that.
I welcome all of you to check it out at the usual address ( http://www.claunia.com/qemu ), register, and put your test results.

You can now put more detailed information, command line used, extended description of behaviour, so on.
You can upload screenshots freely, any number of it.
You can become a maintainer and contribute to the list clean up.
You can check for regressions, seeing more easily, if an operating system worked in an old QEMU version.
You can post HOW-TOs so they stay. All but one of the HOW-TOs linked by url in the old os database are now dead. This will not happen anymore.
Your email is now private, but other database users may contact others users for feedback or questions.
Spam bots are no more welcome.
All spam, incomplete, or invalid entries, have been deleted or corrected.
You can explain in detail what devices you used, what worked, what configuration, in each test.
Changed the 3 state status (working, partially, not working) to a more complete 5 state status (platinum, gold, silver, bronze, garbage) like in Wine.
A help system explains you how to use the database in simple terms and gives you guidelines about how operating systems should be created.

You cannot put your own QEMU release, so GIT/SVN/CVS revisions are not feasible. If there is a real need to put a test data using a "live" revision, you can email me and I'll add that release to the database (if there is a real need for).

Still todo:
List the different video, audio, network, other devices, so you can just click a checkbox of what is used and/or tested. For now, you can freely describe it.
Rebrand/rename some sentences, parts, of the database, that may still reference to Wine (working on progress)

The new list contains the following data:
Users active within the last 30 days:2
Users active within the last 60 days:2
Users active within the last 90 days:2
Inactive users (not logged in since six months):0
Inactive users pending deletion:0
OS families:87
OS maintainers:2
Test reports:255

I hope you like this late christmas gift.

Sincerely yours,
Natalia Portillo
