Over the weekend we reported that QEMU 0.13 had surfaced followed by the release announcement coming out on Monday. The team working on QEMU-KVM, the version of QEMU designed for use with KVM (the Kernel-based Virtual Machine) virtualization on Linux, have also pushed out their v0.13 release based upon upstream QEMU.

There is no QEMU-KVM 0.13.0 change-log published, but this KVM-designed release carries the same upstream changes including a kernel-accelerating network back-end for virtio devices using KVM, QMP improvements, new VNC encodings that improve bandwidth, a new shared memory device that allows multiple guests to share a memory region, the introduction of a para-virtual file-system pass-through mechanism, HPET enhancements, and S390 user-mode emulation support.

The QEMU-KVM 0.13.0 release announcement can be found at Linux-KVM.com.
