 * **Bug fixes**
 
+  * Improve heuristics for computing baseline CPU models
+
+    Both virConnectBaselineHypervisorCPU and virConnectBaselineCPU were
+    in some cases computing the result using a CPU model which was newer
+    than some of the input models. For example, ``Cascadelake-Server`` was
+    used as a baseline for ``Skylake-Server-IBRS`` and ``Cascadelake-Server``.
+    The CPU model selection heuristics was improved to choose a more
+    appropriate model.

You can enclose the names of the APIs in double backticks for nicer
HTML rendering.
