+Major Changes in 0.14.1:
+The main change in this release is the addition of a new protocol extension
+in order to support streaming the remote display as a video stream rather than
+going through the QXL protocol. Together with spice-streaming-agent, and/or with
+more work on the qemu/spice-server side, this should allow streaming of 3D
+accelerated VMs in the future. At this point, this part of spice-server is
+still a work in progress (multi-monitor support and various features are
+* add new org.spice-space.stream.0 channel used for passing an encoded video
+  stream from the guest to the client
+* add support for TCP_CORK to reduce the amount of packets that we send
+* fix CVE-2018-10873
+* fix cursor related migration crash
+* fix regression causing sound recording to be muted after
+  client disconnection/reconnection (introduced in 0.13.90)
+* fix regression in corner cases where images could be sent uncompressed
+  when they used to be compressed with QUIC
+* disable TLS 1.0 support
+* CELT 0.5.1 support is now disabled by default. If celt051-devel is installed
+  at build-time, --enable-celt051/--disable-celt051 must be explicitly specified
+* drop support for unsupported OpenSSL version. OpenSSL 1.0.0 or newer is now
+  required
+* bumped minimum required glib version to 2.32
+* endianness fixes
+* (small) leak fixes
+* usual round of code cleanups
+* not directly related to this release, but the upstream git repository is now
+  hosted on gitlab.freedesktop.org

    Revert "Support h265 in stream-channel"
    This commit needs an unreleased version of spice-protocol.
    The revert is temporary in order to get the spice-server 0.14.1 release
    This reverts commit 9f5859c3ba5e1885dec78f131f96c93bbc37bc80.

+Streaming Agent
+The SPICE streaming agent allows to send an encoded video stream of the guest
+desktop to the client.
+The streaming agent is a daemon/service running in the guest OS so it must be
+installed if it does not yet exist on the guest system.  It relies on a
+dedicated spiceport char device to achieve communication between the guest and
+the host.  This device must be added to the virtual machine as described below
+for the streaming agent to work in the guest.
+.Using virt-manager
+The needed device can be added from the virtual machine
+details. Click on "Add hardware" and then add a "Channel" device with
+type "Spice port (spiceport)". The port should be named
+`org.spice-space.stream.0`, and the channel should also be

+Two distinct devices must be added:
