On behalf of the QEMU Team, I’d like to announce the availability of
the QEMU 2.1.0 release. This release contains 2200+ commits from 180
authors.

Highlights include:

  • Support for pinning memory on host NUMA nodes on x86 guests
  • Basic hot-plug/hot-unplug support for x86 guests using Q35 machine-type
  • AArch64 SHA and Crypto instruction support
  • Full support for USB3 passthrough (including streams)
