The QEMU emulator that is widely used by the open-source Linux virtualization stack is out with its version 3.1 feature release. This is the QEMU update that is adding multi-threaded Tiny Code Generator support, display improvements, adds the Cortex-A72 model and other ARM improvements, and various other enhancements.

QEMU 3.1 also adds support for huge-page backing with KVM, adds Icelake client/server models, improvements to netlink emulation, and it removed support for the GTK2 display front-end thus now requiring GTK3. A complete look at the QEMU 3.1 changes can be found via the project Wiki.
