On behalf of the QEMU Team, I'd like to announce the availability of the second release candidate for the QEMU 1.1 release. This release is meant for testing purposes and should not be used in a production environment.


You can help improve the quality of the QEMU 1.1 release by testing this release and reporting bugs on Launchpad:


The release plan for the 1.1 release is available at:


And a detailed change log is available at:


Known Issues:

- There appears to be a failure in make check on some platforms. This will be resolved in -rc3.

Just for the record: there are a lot more known issues.
Here is a small extract:

- SDL (zooming) and VNC both access uninitialized memory.
  SDL even writes out of bounds. Valgrind finds both kinds
  of defects easily.

- There are still several known memory leaks. For some of them
  patches were already sent to qemu-devel.

- There are known deficits in the emulations. Even the x86_64
  system emulation which is one of the best maintained emulations
  still causes a blue screen when running a 64 bit Windows guest
  in TCG mode, for example.

A lot was already done, but there still remains much work to be done :-)
