04 Oct 2016 - Xen 4.7 enters the testing repositories

An initial build of Xen 4.7 has hit the testing repositories for both EL6 and EL7. Currently the EFI portions do not build, but all other parts of the build seem functional. Testing feedback should be via the mailing list and bugs via the bug tracker.


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.
