QEMU 2.2 is due out on Friday while out now is 2.2-rc4.

QEMU 2.2 is coming along well and released yesterday evening was an extra release candidate due to bugs found last week that were present in 2.2-rc3. In releasing QEMU 2.2-rc4, Michael Roth expressed plans to still have the official release out on Friday, 5 December. The only changes in -rc4 were the handful of important fixes.

Among the many changes for QEMU 2.2 are improved ARM/MIPS/PowerPC/pSeries/Freescale/S390/SPARC support improvements, a new TriCore target, support for AVX512 emulation on x86 systems, IOMMU/VT-d emulation for the Q35 machine type, support for booting a bzImage or multi-boot kernel under Xen, SCSI improvements, support for USB 2.0 high-speed mice and keyboards, hot-plugging support for XHCI/EHCI/UHCI controllers, Samba 4.1 support, etc.
