User-agent: alot/0.5.1


On behalf of the QEMU Team, I'd like to announce the availability of the
sixth release candidate for the QEMU 2.9 release.  This release is meant
for testing purposes and should not be used in a production environment.


A note from the maintainer:

  This has just two changes since rc4:
   * fix bug where a system_reset could hang if it
     happened while a block job was running
   * a security fix (CVE-2017-7471) for a bug in the 9pfs
     filesystem which could allow a guest to perform
     chmod and chown operations on the host filesystem
     root directory (if QEMU was running with privileges)
  We plan to roll the final release on Thursday with
  no further changes.

You can help improve the quality of the QEMU 2.9 release by testing this
release and reporting bugs on Launchpad:


The release plan, as well a documented known issues for release
candidates, are available at:


The dates have been pushed back due to delays with the initial RC
and important fixes late in the release cycle.

Please add entries to the ChangeLog for the 2.9 release below:
