28 Jan 2016 - Xen 4.4 reaches security fixes only status
The announcement of Xen 4.4.4 marks the move of Xen 4.4 tree into security only maintenance mode. If you have not yet started to plan for the upgrade to Xen 4.5 or the latest 4.6, it may be wise to consider doing so. Xen versions from 4.5 onwards do not have the xm toolkit - which may present some challenges in some environments in implementing an upgrade path.

17 Dec 2015 - Kernel updated to 4.1.15
With the latest batch of XSA updates, I've taken the opportunity to update from the previous 3.18 longterm tree to the 4.1 longterm tree. Hopefully we see some improvements with the work that was done on Xen between 3.18 and 4.1.
