 * **Bug fixes**
+  * Avoid taking extra host memory when launching pSeries guests
+    Under certain conditions, pSeries guests were being launched with more
+    RAM than it was specified in the domain XML by the user. New pSeries
+    domains created with libvirt 7.0.0 will always launch with the right
+    amount of initial memory. Existing guests that migrate from an older
+    libvirt version to 7.0.0 will not be affected by this change.
