Xen 4.3 update: Code Freeze started

Just a quick update — we have passed the feature freeze, and are now beginning the code freeze, in our schedule to get Xen 4.3 out by mid-June. Is say “beginning the code freeze” because it is still possible to get new code in for a short time now; but each case requires an explicit exception. I’ve posted a more detailed description on the xen-devel mailing list.

As a reminder, we are planning on a 9-month release cycle. Based on that, below are
our estimated dates:

  • Feature freeze: 25 March 2013
  • Code freezing point: 15 April 2013< == We are here
  • First RC: 6 May 2013
  • Release: 17 June 2013

If you are an early adopter, please begin testing functionality that you care about and reporting bugs!
