Hey everyone,

I just cut a new release in the 0.14.x stable series, this has several
regression and security fixes compared to 0.14.0, so upgrading to it is
recommended. If you find any bugs or regressions, please report them in
our issue tracker: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/groups/spice/-/issues

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
* 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
