New Features (v2.2.0)

  • (macOS 11.3+ Only) Bridged networking and shared networking support. You can configure it in the Network settings for your VM.
  • (macOS 11+ and iOS 13+) GPU acceleration for OpenGL on Linux. Use virtio-ramfb or virtio-gpu-gl-pci display device and compatible Linux drivers (most modern Linux distros will have it already installed). Windows is not supported because there is currently no virtio-gpu driver for Windows that supports 3D acceleration.

Changes (v2.2.2)

  • (iOS) Enable OpenGL acceleration for iOS 11-12
  • (iOS 15+) Increased memory limit for supported devices (M1 iPads currently)
  • (macOS) Fix layout issues in settings on macOS Monterey (#2644)
  • (macOS) Fix capturing of hotkeys (such as Cmd+Tab) (#2677)
  • Disable port forwarding options for shared & bridged networking
  • Fixed crash when PPC screamer is selected on iOS (currently this is still not supported)
  • Refactored non-OpenGL rendering code, fixing some random crashes seen in TestFlight reports.

Changes (v2.2.3)

  • (iOS) When a mouse/trackpad is already connected when UTM starts up, it will now be properly detected (#3013)
  • (iOS) Handle touch and Apple Pencil input while the mouse is captured (#2669)
  • Windows BSOD on boot/setup due to PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (#2721)
  • EFI Boot is now a configurable option: by default new VMs created for pc, q35, and virt* machines will have EFI enabled. In previous versions, EFI is only enabled for virt* machines. Due to compatibility with boot, existing pc and q35 VMs will NOT have EFI enabled and must be manually turned on in Settings -> System -> Advanced Configuration -> UEFI Boot. This may also require you to re-install the bootloader on your VM. As part of this change, EFI variables will also be properly handled (on both ARM and x86 VMs). Note that if you've configured a custom pflash device for your VM, the new UEFI Boot option will take no effect (same as before).
  • Added virtio-ramfb-gl device to support GPU Acceleration. On previous beta builds, GL is enabled automatically for virtio-ramfb. Now, that display device will not get GPU acceleration. This is to be more consistent with the other -gl display devices. By default, new VMs created will have virtio-ramfb-gl selected for virt devices (ARM) and virtio-vga-gl selected for q35 and pc devices (x86). If you wish to use GPU acceleration on an existing VM, you need to change your display device to one of these two recommended devices (or any device with -gl in the name).
