@TingPing: Thanks for the feedback. I will remove the install file for next virtio-win release.

You should probably remove the install file; It does nothing of use and it just adds extra work on users to audit each update. Surely they know how to use their package manager to see what files a package contains.

From virtion-win 0.1.113 Windows 10 drivers were put in .vfd images. It has been tested and it works fine with Windows 10.

Thanks @DonOregano for letting me know. I still have not found a proper way to know when a new virtio-win release came out.

@melvinvermeeren thanks! Package updated.

I have been looking for a way to know when a new version has been released. If you know, let me know and I will try to update quicker.

Looks like 0.1.109-2 is out.

Bump up virtio-win One change:

- Change qemu as optional dependency, instead of a required dependency.

@argymeg: thank you for suggestion.
