Objet: [Qemu-devel] [ANNOUNCE] QEMU 2.4.0.1 CVE update released

Hi everyone, 

As part of recent planning around stable releases discussed during 
KVM Forum, I'm releasing the first of what will be regular (hopefully 
not *too* regular) CVE-only stable updates. These updates are 
intended to reduce the gap between vulnerability disclosures and 
patched/packaged releases. 

You can grab the latest release here: 

http://wiki.qemu.org/download/qemu-2.4.0.1.tar.bz2 

Please see the changelog for CVE numbers/details. Users are 
encouraged to update as soon as possible. 

v2.4.0.1 is now tagged in the official qemu.git repository, 
and the stable-2.4 branch has been updated accordingly: 

http://git.qemu.org/?p=qemu.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/stable-2.4 

These CVE-only releases are produced as-needed and are on no set 
release schedule. 

Full stable releases are still tentatively planned to continue as they 
(mostly) have in the past: 1 mid-cycle stable update, and 1 stable update 
at the end of each release cycle, with freeze dates announced in advance 
to pull together important fixes. v2.4.1 is currently planned for 
2015-10-20:

Thank you to everyone involved!
