Virt-Manager 1.4 has been released and it's a great release for those wanting to easily play with Virgl for OpenGL atop the open-source Linux virtualization stack.

Virgl continues to mature within the upstream Linux kernel, the Gallium3D code, QEMU, etc. With the virt-manager 1.4 release, all of the toggles for Virgl / OpenGL support are now exposed for making it easy to enable this guest 3D acceleration for VMs managed by virt-manager.

Virt-Manager 1.4 has SPICE OpenGL console support, new --graphics gl= / --video accel3d ptions, other graphics related options, and a few other new options too outside of the graphics space.

More details on virt-manager 1.4 can be found via this blog post by developer Cole Robinson.
