's move to the build system was been merged while I was way on holiday. Slowly re-building my many build variants now I'm back at work.

2020 may be a dumpster fire but the release keep on rolling. Some features include 8.5 MemTag, vhost-user support , and gdbstub socket connections. See blog qemu.org/2020/08/11/qemu-5-1-0

Sometimes you just have to dive in to the mega-thread about build systems just so you know whats coming after the next release is out. What will I do with all my accumulated hacks now?

I think I can throw away a chunk of my custom based review tag tracking code thanks to the brilliant and 's archiving on lore.kernel.org. I still use it for tracking review comments and change requests though.

Hmm the mastodon gateway squashed the URL because I used the CW feature so here it is again, my blog on the evolution of the translator: linaro.org/blog/the-evolution- - warning may contain compilers ;-)

contains code generators 

More writings, this time on the blog: linaro.org/blog/the-evolution- - may contain code generation.

This was originally going to be documentation for but it makes more sense as a blog post. What goes into a boot: qemu.org/2020/07/03/anatomy-of

Want to test your code will run on the worlds most powerful supercomputer, powered by ? has you covered ;-)

has released 5.0. Notable inclusions include a whole slew of ARM v8.x updates including emulation support so you can test things like enabled . We also have our RST doc pipeline working: wiki.qemu.org/ChangeLog/5.0

Find yourself with time on your hands and a desire to learn about the joys of code instrumentation and generation? Google's program has extended it's application deadline to the end of the month. See the wiki for project ideas: wiki.qemu.org/Google_Summer_of

So you want to hack on ? Have you looked at the developer documentation? Now with nicer rendering: qemu.readthedocs.io/en/stable/

We finally got the VHE extensions working in 's emulation last night. A successful inaugural code sprint. This opens the way to testing virtualisation as well.

My talk about plugins (youtube.com/watch?v=wxIF0dvGDu) has gone up on the channel. I think I was moving around too much to keep the autofocus on the camera happy but the slides and speech are clear.

Today I shall mostly be trying to hit all the floating point edge cases I can.

Some of the old VMs I have to keep around to check support on "legacy" builds only have 24 which is playing havoc with my config. I'm slightly tempted to propose we up the minimum build OS requirements.

TIL lore.kernel.org is archiving development and has services for the archives. Time to give another go on my laptop. lore.kernel.org/qemu-devel/

Today has mostly been spent updating .travis.yml configs and waiting for builds to fail. is great for small projects but I suspect is just too big and complex to be comfortable there.
