QEMU, the processor emulator that can be used alone for running unmodified guest operating systems and can optionally take advantage of KVM (the Kernel-based Virtual Machine) for greater virtualization performance with Intel and AMD hardware, has finally reached version 0.13 after suffering from a few delays. As was reported by us back in January of this year, QEMU 0.13 would focus on bringing new features and with this release they have achieved introducing several new features.

The new features to be found in QEMU 0.13 include a helper-based network setup, fully supported QMP, live migration protocol update, PCI compliance, CPU model support, and other features.

QEMU 0.13 was supposed to be developed on a six-month release cycle, which would have put the release back in July or August, but that clear didn't happen. As said by Anthony Liguori (on qemu-devel), the QEMU 0.13 release maintainer, as part of the development discussion for the next release (QEMU 0.14) they should talk about how to avoid such release setbacks in the future.

QEMU 0.13.0 can be fetched from the GNU Savanna Server.
