    Default QEMU 0.15 Brings Several New Features

    Phoronix: QEMU 0.15 Brings Several New Features

    Replacing QEMU 0.14, which was released back in February, is now QEMU 0.15. This new major update to this open-source processor emulator that's commonly used with KVM (the Linux Kernel-based Virtual Machine) delivers on several prominent features...

    Why? If QEMU developers find it useful and take advantage of a library instead of reimplementing everything from scratch and invariably in a buggy way, everyone benefits from that. If the objection was anything technical, I guess we will hear about the specific details instead of this response

    Default Benchmarks

    With new releases from QEMU and VirtualBox, and Xen finally making it into the kernel, I think it's time for a virtualization comparison

    QEMU doesn't have any kernel component. KVM and Xen kernel patches are all in the kernel as of 3.0 and VirtualBox modules haven't been submitted upstream at all afaik. It isn't likely to get merged in as it is.

    You should read the link you are pointing to

    "Current versions of qemu (0.11 and up) has no support for kqemu anymore, focusing on kvm instead"

    Reusing glib is the opposite of bloat. Rewriting each of the relevant functions would be much more bloat than reusing a well tested, mature and widely used library. I don't own a horse. I have a pony though :-)

    The commit mentioned two things, tests and threading in virtio-p9. Why do you believe all users should be penalized for a developer use case (tests), or a small minority (plan 9)?
