No idea. 2.11.0 was released Dec 13th 2017.  By date 2.10.2 (Dec 18th
2017) is "newest" and from what I can gather so far git master is
development and both 2.10.x and 2.11.x are the stable branches (or
tags...).  Reading the changelogs and planning/2.1x just confuses as it
looks almost as though 2 different groups pull from the same master but
go their own path. There's no explanation as far as I can find.

2.11.0 2017-11-07 hard feature freeze
2.10.0 2017-07-25 hard feature freeze

BUT, they don't seem to stick with that as 2.10.2 lists a lot of
additions/deletions... The only thing that makes sense is if they are
patching a release for those that can't upgrade qemu as much and need
more code stability?

I just got tired of leapfrogging back and forth...
