Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2 00/12] spice: add -display spice-app, setup and launch a Spice client
Date: Thu, 20 Dec 2018 18:15:41 +0400


The QEMU GTK UI is quite featurful. Yet, it doesn't provide many of
the functionalities one can expect from a VM desktop application (USB
redirection, shared folders, drag and drop, better multimonitor
support etc.).

Spice is able to export many of the VM controls to a client, including
QMP monitor, serial ports etc... It's thus possible for a Spice client
to provide a similar experience as the QEMU GTK UI (while keeping
similar display performances locally) and more.

This series provides "-display spice-app" to setup a Spice server and
launch a client (associated with the spice+unix:// URI). With
virt-viewer series "Add QEMU-like UI: VT console & basic VM state"
(under review), the resulting user experience is close to what qemu
GTK UI provides.

- renamed -display app -> -display spice-app
- error if full-screen or window-close is provided (supports can be
  added later)
- use a stable URI when -name is provided
- print the URI at start
- added "qapi: document DisplayType enum"
- added "spice: use a default name for the server"
- commit message tweaks
- include previously reviewed "configure: bump spice-server required
  version to 0.12.5", to avoid conflicts
- rebased

Marc-André Lureau (12):
  configure: bump spice-server required version to 0.12.5
  char/spice: trigger HUP event
  char/spice: discard write() if backend is disconnected
  spice: avoid spice runtime assert
  spice: merge options lists
  spice: do not stop spice if VM is paused
  char: move SpiceChardev and open_spice_port() to spice.h header
  char: register spice ports after spice started
  build-sys: add gio-2.0 check
  qapi: document DisplayType enum
  spice: use a default name for the server
  display: add -display spice-app launching a Spice client
