The QEMU team is pleased to announce the availability of the 0.13.0 release.

This release consists of over 2,500 commits from 145 contributors.

Some major features were added in this release including:

- vhost-net: kernel-accelerating network backend for virtio devices (using KVM)
 - qmp: significant improvements covering most monitor commands
- vnc: introduction of new encodings that dramatically improve bandwidth (part of GSoC project) - ivshmem: new shared memory device allowing multiple guests to share a memory region
 - mips: introduction of fulong mini-pc
- virtio-9p: introduction of a paravirtual file system passthrough mechanism
 - hpet: many enhancements
 - target-s390: support for s390 usermode emulation
 - many more features and bug fixes

For detailed Changelogs, please consult the revision history in git.

On behalf of the QEMU team, I'd like to thank everyone who contributed
to make this release happen!

A special note about QMP support in 0.13.0. QMP is still considered experimental in 0.13.0. There are no plans to change the protocol in an incompatible way but there are likely to be missing features.
