Jump to: navigation, search

version 1.4.0pre1:

 - API change: identical ioctls for 32 and 64 bit modes, allowing the use of the 32 bit user space QEMU on a 64 bit host.
 - Added KQEMU_SET_PHYS_MEM ioctl to separate the physical memory mappings of kqemu from the QEMU ones.
 - Added communication page for paravirtualization. A paravirtualized guest OS can modify its IF and IOPL flags without a fallback to the KQEMU x86 interpreter.
 - fixed CBW instruction emulation (aka Linux 2.6.25 bug)

version 1.3.0pre11:

 - dynamic device '/dev/kqemu' creation is now the default.
 - '-fno-stack-protector' gcc option fix
 - added kqemu regression tests (can serve as API usage example too)
 - included kqemu technical doc

version 1.3.0pre10:

 - Changed license to GPL version 2
 - x86_64 full virtualization support

version 1.3.0pre9:

 - Fixed host CR0.TS computation (aka Windows XP host bug with -kernel-kqemu and FreeBSD host "npxdna: fpcurthread == curthread" error message).

version 1.3.0pre8:

 - API change for MODULE_PARM macro in 2.6.x kernels.

version 1.3.0pre7:

 - null LDT handling typo

version 1.3.0pre6:

 - compile fix for Linux kernel version >= 2.6.16
 - better null LDT handling (aka Plan9 and ReactOS bug)
 - moved monitor code to another address (aka win2k 256 MB bug)

version 1.3.0pre5:

 - fixed handling of 8 bit registers (aka Linux bug with -kernel-kqemu)
 - win32 temporary workaround for CancelIo()

 - SYSENTER fix for x86_64
 - (Linux) added 'max_instances' module parameter
 - (win32) cpu interruption support (Filip Navara)
 - (win32) kqemu.inf installation file (Filip Navara)
