Prerelease version 1.8.0-pre0 available

Item posted by Linas Žvirblis <linas> on Sat Feb 3 18:08:59 2007.

This is an initial preview for upcoming 1.8.0 release. 1.8.0-pre0 is an important milestone in development of the next major release of Qemu Launcher, marking the point where it has reached the functionality of 1.7.x (or has come close enough).

1.8.0-pre0 is more focused on usability than any other past release. The interface was totally reworked making Qemu Launcher more intuitive and user friendly.

The internals have also changed a lot, making Qemu Launcher easier to maintain and extend.

Here is a detailed changelog:

  • Version 1.8.0-pre0;
  • Initial preview for upcoming 1.8.0 release;
  • Completely reworked GUI with usability in mind:
    • familiar interface not unlike a file manager,
    • multi-window interface instead of a single-window one,
    • windows are now resizable and take less screen space,
    • customizable look and feel;
  • Support for kernel based virtual machine (KVM);
  • Autodetection for external applications;
  • Ability to copy data from existing devices to disk images;
  • Stores configuration files in XDG compliant location;
  • Configuration file format not compatible with 1.7.x format.

Also check the TODO list for things that are yet to be done.

In the mean time, 1.7.x remains in maintenance-only state, where only bugfix releases will take place, as needed.
