On behalf of the QEMU Team, I'd like to announce the availability of the
QEMU 1.5.0 release!


This release was developed in a little more than 90 days by over 130
unique authors averaging 20 commits a day.  This represents a
year-to-year growth of over 38 percent making it the most active release
in QEMU history.

Highlights of this release include:

 - KVM for ARM support
 - A native GTK+ UI with internationalization support
 - Experimental VFIO support for VGA passthrough
 - Kernel accelerated paravirtual SCSI via tcm_vhost support
 - TLS support for VNC over websockets
 - VHDX support (read-only)
 - Significant performance improvements for TCG on Windows hosts
 - Support for VMware PVSCSI and VMXNET3 device emulation
 - USB passthrough now uses libusb
 - Support for booting from virtio-ccw for s390x guests
 - Paravirtual guest panic notification support
 - TPM passthrough support
 - CPU hot-add support
 - Character device hotplug and other improvements
 - QCOW2 internal snapshot performance improvements
 - And much more...

I'd like to thank everyone who contributed to this release by submitting
patches, testing out -rcs, or reporting bugs during the release process!
