For reference, this is the full upstream diff from v2.0.0-rc1 to v2.0.0 final.

Thanks for uploading the fix for this bug report to -proposed. However, when reviewing the package in -proposed and the details of this bug report I noticed that the bug description is missing information required for the SRU process. You can find full details at but essentially this bug is missing some of the following: a statement of impact, a test case and details regarding the regression potential. Thanks in advance!

Hello Fantu, or anyone else affected,

Accepted qemu into trusty-proposed. The package will build now and be available at in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at . Thank you in advance!

I confirm that crashes with spice have been solved since I installed qemu 2.0-rc2 from source.
About the Trusty's qemu package qemu I cannot try it now, I'll use it when I'll migrate my work laptop to Trusty, perhaps one of the following weekends.
However qemu 2.0 defined by including the patches I already tested certainly solves crashes with spice.

Ran a utopic livecd over spice for some time and had a minion play a game of sudoku on it, all worked well.
