== Description: ==
libvfio-user is a user space library that implements the vfio-user protocol.
vfio-user is a protocol [1] that allows out-of-process emulation [2] in QEMU.
Although vfio-user is not specific to QEMU, QEMU is its primary use case.
vfio-user is modelled after VFIO.

libvfio-user is implemented in C however we plan to implement bindings for
other languages.

libvfio-user was initially named MUSER, which contained a kernel module so the
whole project was released under dual license. We have dropped the kernel
module thus there is no requirement for being dual licensed.


== Other Software Required: ==
cmake, BSD 3-clause License,
cmocka, Apache License 2.0,
json-c, MIT,

== Tarball URL: ==
