+  * qemu: Add support for migratable host-passthrough CPU
+    QEMU 2.12 made it possible for guests to use a migration-friendly
+    version of the host-passthrough CPU. This feature is now exposed by
+    libvirt.
 * **Improvements**
+  * network: Support NAT with IPv6
+    It's now possible to use ``<nat ipv6="yes"/>`` in a libvirt network.
+  * qemu: Auto-fill NUMA information for incomplete topologies
+    If the NUMA topology is not fully described in the guest XML, libvirt
+    will complete it by putting all unspecified CPUs in the first NUMA node.
+    This is only done in the QEMU binary itself supports disjointed CPU
+    ranges for NUMA nodes.
+  * qemu: Assign hostdev-backed interfaces to PCIe slots
+    All SR-IOV capable devices are PCIe, so when their VFs are assigned to
+    guests they should end up in PCIe slots rather than conventional PCI ones.
 * **Bug fixes**
   * qemu: fixed crash in ``qemuDomainBlockCommit``

     Removes the correlation between the zPCI address attributes uid and fid.
     Fixes the validation and autogeneration of zPCI address attributes.
+  * qemu: Skip pre-creation of NVMe disks during migration
+    libvirt has no way to create NVMe devices on the target host, so it now
+    just makes sure they exist and let the migration proceed in that case.
