* **New features**
+ * qemu: Core Scheduling support
+ To avoid side channel attacks, the Linux kernel allows creating groups of
+ processes that trust each other and thus can be scheduled to run on
+ hyperthreads of a CPU core at the same time. This is now implemented for
+ QEMU domains too (see ``sched_core`` knob in qemu.conf), although not
+ enabled by default, just yet.
* Add ``vendor`` attribute for CPU models in domain capabilities

In 8.8.0 release libvirt daemon would crash after it was restarted during
an active outgoing migration.
+ * qemu: Refresh state after restore from a save image
+ When a domain is restored from a saved image, libvirt now queries QEMU for
+ those parts of runtime information that were not part of the save image.
+ For instance: MAC address of a macvtap NICs, tray state of CD-ROMs,
+ allocated size of virtio-mem, and others.
