[Qemu-devel] [PULL 05/12] doc: switch to modern syntax for VNC TLS setup

From: Gerd Hoffmann
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PULL 05/12] doc: switch to modern syntax for VNC TLS setup
Date: Thu, 23 Aug 2018 11:56:46 +0200

From: Daniel P. Berrangé <address@hidden>

The use of 'tls', 'x509' and 'x509verify' properties is the deprecated
backcompat syntax, replaced by use of TLS creds objects.
