qemu: Allow XML validation for snapshot creation
Add flag VIR_DOMAIN_SNAPSHOT_CREATE_VALIDATE to validate snapshot input XML. For virsh, users can use it as virsh snapshot-create --validate. (See also Virsh/virsh snapshot-create-as)
  • v5.1.0 2019-03-04
External snapshot metadata redefinition is fixed
Attempting to use VIR_DOMAIN_SNAPSHOT_CREATE_REDEFINE to reinstate the metadata describing an external snapshot :created earlier for an offline domain no longer fails.

qemu: unlink memory backing file on domain shutdown
Depending on the filesystem where domain memory is stored, some files might have been left behind. This is not a :problem on hugetlbfs, but it is a problem on regular filesystems like ext4.
qemu: If multiple domains were being shut down in parallel, libvirtd might have deadlocked.
  • v4.0.0 2018-01-19

storage: Add Virtuozzo storage backend storage pool
  • v2.5.0 2016-12-04
The new libssh transport allows to connect to a running libvirtd via SSH, using the libssh library; for example: qemu+libssh://server/system
