The Perfect Gift for Holiday Season from Xen.org

Are you looking for the perfect gift this year? Do you often give the “I don’t know” answer when asked what you want? Well, I have the perfect solution for you – a Xen item from the Xen Store at CafePress.

Here is just a sample of what I have ordered in the past:

Xenweb

In fact, I have never had a problem with any of the items that I (or the Smurf) have ordered. Also, Xen.org does not make any profit from the sale of any Xen.org items – I have chosen to offer the lowest price possible on the items.

Finally, if you don’t see any item that you like, please let me know and I can add it to the Xen Store.

Xen 4.0 Feature Freeze Announcement

From Keir in xen-devel:

Lots of new features have recently made it into the xen-unstable tree, and I think now is the time to declare a freeze so that we can get 4.0 out the door early in the New Year. If you’re sitting on any feature patches, declare them or send them on now – I want to freeze the tree except for any agreed special cases at the end of the week.

ChromiumOS 64 Xen Project

I have added a new project to the community projects page on xen.org at http://www.xen.org/community/projects.html. The great work from Teo En Ming is now easily found by people looking for interesting Xen related projects. The home page of this new project is at http://www.chromiumos64.org/. I have also loaded the latest DomU download at http://www.xen.org/files/Chromium/chromiumos64-xen-build-3dec2009.vmdk.zip (1.2 GB). On the ChromiumOS64 project page you can find this download broken down into separate components for those not wanting to do such a large download at once.

Xen Summit Asia 2009 Videos and Slides Available

I have finally completed the gathering of all the Xen Summit Asia information and it is available for your review at http://www.xen.org/xensummit/xensummit_fall_2009.html. Included on this page are all slides in pdf format as well as HD videos of the presentations in .MTS format. I have also updated the Xen Event Speakers page at http://www.xen.org/community/event_speakers.html with profiles of the speakers.

I have double checked everything but I do sometimes make mistakes so please let me know if there is a broken link or incorrect video, etc.
