 * **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.
 * **Improvements**
   * Add ``vendor`` attribute for CPU models in domain capabilities

     In 8.8.0 release libvirt daemon would crash after it was restarted during

+  * 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.
