First Xen Project 4.4 Test Day on Monday, January 20

Release time is approaching, so Xen Project Test Days have arrived!

On Monday, January 20, we are holding a Test Day for Xen 4.4. Release Candidate 2.

Xen Project Test Day is your opportunity to work with code which is targeted for the next release, ensure that new features work well, and verify that the new code can be integrated successfully into your environment.  This is the first of a few Test Days for the 4.4 release, scheduled to occur at roughly 2 week intervals.

General Information about Test Days can be found here:

and specific instructions for this Test Day are located here:


If you have a new feature which is cooked and ready for testing in RC2, we need to know about it and how to test it. Either edit the instructions page or send me a few lines describing the feature and how it should be tested.

Right now, RC2 is labelled a general test (e.g., “Does Xen compile, install, and do the things Xen normally does?”). We don’t have any specific tests of new functionality identified. If you have something new which needs testing in RC2, we need to know about it.


Please join us on Monday, January 20, and help make sure the next release of Xen is the best one yet!
