Version 1.0 of QEMU published

Filed under
Software

Following four release candidates, the QEMU project has announced the arrival of version 1.0 of its open source system emulator. QEMU can be used as a stand-alone desktop virtualisation product or be used to emulate guest hardware, such as an ARM-based board on a standard x86 PC.

The major update to the software now uses a separate thread for each VCPU and adds support for new CPUs; the SCSI emulation has also been improved. One experimental feature is particularly interesting: instead of generating native code run by the host operating system, QEMU can now create bytecode and run it with its own interpreter (Tiny Code Interpreter).
