Re: [Xen-devel] QEMU version in Xen

This is the version number of QEMU.

I wonder:
Version  0.8.0 of QEMU was out in December 2005.

See: http://fabrice.bellard.free.fr/qemu.

Is there a reason for using an old version of QEMU ?
(which , if I am not wrong, was adjusted slightly to fit Xen needs)

Is there a real obstacle which exists in 0.8.0 (and does not exists in
0.6.1) which prevents using the newer QEMU 0.8.0 version ?

We want to upgrade to a newer version but it's non-trivial since some of the source files have been significantly modified for Xen.
