Quickemu 4.9.6 has been released, bringing more comprehensive testing to CI, updating manuals and rules to meet Community Standards, and fixing flakes in the Nix flake.

The built-in QEMU smb server now works, and the issue with killing running virtual machines with --kill has been resolved. Windows Server no longer requires a network connection after installation, Fedora Silverblue downloads are repaired, and automatic "push any key" for Windows installs is improved. Windows 8.1, Windows 10 LTSC, and Windows Server 2012 R2 are no longer supported, as is the ncurses dependency. The updates include a monkey patch for quickemu, samba for file sharing, and a default to the e1000 network device. The modifications include a rewrite to retrieve rounded integer RAM_HOST values, updating Nix flake consistency with the quickgui flake, and adding resolve_quickemu().
