  • compile failure on MIPS hosts building aarch64 targets
  • m68k: fix exception stack frame for 68000
  • fix for handling dirty bitmaps in qcow2 files
  • gtk message catalogs not installed if CONFIG_GTK=y
  • softfloat: division of inf by 0 should not raise DivByZero

Not yet fixed in any rc

Issues that will not be fixed

  • update po files (needed because of recent changes in ui/gtk.c)
  • mux Ctrl-a b doesn't send break
  • the query-cpus-fast QMP command reports bogus arch data for all architectures except x86 and s390; applications should be careful to not rely on the bogus information
