+  * qemu: Support rbd pool namespace in the source name
+    The namespaces is for the tenant isolation within a rbd pool, introduced
+    from Ceph Nautilus, supported since ``QEMU 5.0.0``. In libvirt, the format
+    of rbd source name like ``<pool>/<namespace>/<image>`` could be used to
+    access a certain namespace of a rbd pool. And the format ``<pool>/<image>``
+    is reserved for the default namespace of a rbd pool.
