    I hope they finally fixed the horrible qcow2 data corruption bug that appeared in 4.1.

      How can one report bugs to Qemu? They are supposedly using Launchpad bug tracker, but I haven't been able to log in there even once, after creating Ubuntu One account used by Launchpad.

      Every time I log in, I get this:
      Oops!

      Sorry, something just went wrong in Launchpad.

      We’ve recorded what happened, and we’ll fix it as soon as possible. Apologies for the inconvenience.

      (Error ID: OOPS-1602b8a182a6b0f941c782165c294717)
      I wish they used sane bug trackers instead.

        Do you have a link to that? That sounds serious.

          Indeed. Launchpad sucks.

            Send it to the qemu-dev mailing list. Better than nothing :-)

              Terrible article.
              You wrote 2.4 in the content.
              Would've been better off just quoting the change log.
              Also mobile site is terrible. When you click to sign in it clicks the ad in the background.
              Had to relaunch in brave to comment.
              I like your benchmarks but your articles are terrible.
              Please fix your sign in overlay; stop it from clicking ads in the background or I will just block ads.

                  This doesn't really surprise me.
                  As someone who has a ppa on launchpad and used to use launchpad as translation service I have seen far too many error messages. I don't know what they do to keep breaking stuff....

                    I had the same issue. After sending an e-mail to [email protected] with this info, they did something to my account to fix the problem.
