Subject: [virtio-comment] Invitation to comment on Virtual I/O Device (VIRTIO) Version 1.1 - ends February 21st
Message-ID: <>

OASIS members and other interested parties,

OASIS and the OASIS Virtual I/O Device (VIRTIO) TC are pleased to announce
that Virtual I/O Device (VIRTIO) Version 1.1 is now available for public
review and comment.

Specification Overview:

This document describes the specifications of the “virtio” family of
devices. These  devices are found in virtual environments, yet by design
they look like physical devices to the guest within the virtual machine -
and this document treats them as such. This similarity allows the guest to
use standard drivers and discovery mechanisms. The purpose of virtio and
this specification is that virtual environments and guests should have a
straightforward, efficient, standard and extensible mechanism for virtual
devices, rather than boutique per-environment or per-OS mechanisms.

The documents and related files are available here:
