Hi everyone,

I am pleased to announce that the QEMU v2.11.1 stable release is now

You can grab the tarball from our download page here:


v2.11.1 is now tagged in the official qemu.git repository,
and the stable-2.11 branch has been updated accordingly:


This update contains new functionality needed to enable mitigations for
Spectre/Meltdown (CVE-2017-5715) in x86, pseries, and s390x QEMU/KVM
guest operating systems. Documentation for the various options/requirements
for enabling this functionality is available here:


There are also security fixes for potential host DoS attacks via
VGA devices (CVE-2018-5683) and VNC clients (CVE-2017-15124), as
well as the normal range of general fixes. Please see the changelog
for additional details and update accordingly.

Thank you to everyone involved!
