qemu (1:2.12+dfsg-2) unstable; urgency=medium
Since qemu 2.12, [G]UI display frontends can be built as modules.
Debian creates new package, qemu-system-gui, which currently
includes GTK3 support. This also switches display from SDL to GTK.
Qemu-system-* packages recommends installing qemu-system-gui, so
by default on upgrade you will have new package installed, and
local GUI will continue to work. However, if you choose to not
install recommended packages, you might consider installing
qemu-system-gui package separately, if you need local GUI support
as well. Without this package, qemu-system-* becomes "headless",
and can be used on servers to reduce amount of dependencies -
this way, no X11 stuff is needed by qemu-system anymore.

qemu (1:2.2+dfsg-6exp) unstable; urgency=medium
Since Debian release 2.2+dfsg-6exp, a new package named qemu-block-extra
has been created and some less frequently used block backends has been
split out of main qemu-system binaries and from qemu-img binary to
this new package. The backends which has been split are:
If you use any of these, please install qemu-block-extra package in
addition to qemu-system-* or qemu-utils package, because without it
these block backends won't work anymore.

qemu (2.0.0+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=low
qemu-system-* packages does not provide /usr/bin/qemu alternative
anymore, and all various alternatives will be unregistered at new
individual qemu-system packages install. This is because different
architectures are not really alternatives, and never has been.
Historically, qemu emulated just one architecture, so the name "qemu"
was used for the binary. However when more architectures were added,
the old name "qemu" was used as an alternative, pointing to one of
the emulators. Upstream does not use the name "qemu" for binaries
for a long time. If you have scripts using the old name "qemu"
please update them to use the right qemu-system-* binary.
