Version 1.0 of QEMU published
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).
