Latest news:

2020: 0.9.6 is now the current development version (in master for now), use TBK fork if you want to use a stable checkout now, but use this repository if you want to contribute to AQEMU's future. Building using meson/ninja is recommended now. See the changelog for all the new features that will work in the next stable release, I'm most exciting about AQEMU being turned into a manager for VM services. This means you can close the AQEMU UI and your VMs will keep running, also you can restart the UI and manage running VMs you previously started with AQEMU. And even better, you're able to start/stop VMs from the command line without the need for a UI. Giving you a lot more flexibility, and hopefully increasing the audience for AQEMU. As you may have guessed there are still many issues with this new set of features, therefore a stable release can't be provided currently. I was working on those features years ago, when I had to stop due various reasons, but now I plan to bring the work to an end, hopefully with the help of the community.

Example how to build using meson/ninja:

meson builddir
cd builddir

I set up a crowdfunding page for AQEMU, it will enable users to donate for the whole project and/or for individual issues. Please consider setting up a monthly donation.

I want AQEMU to pick up steam again with your help, with the goal of making the best virtual machine manager GUI.
