Announcing Xen Project 4.8 RC and Test Day Schedule

On Monday, we created Xen 4.8 RC1 and will release a new release candidate every week, until we declare a release candidate as the final candidate and cut the Xen 4.8 release. We will also hold a Test Day every Friday for the release candidate that was released the week prior to the Test Day. Note that RC’s are announced on the following mailing lists: xen-announce, xen-devel and xen-users. This means we will have Test Days on October 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th.

Your testing is still valuable on other days, so please feel free to send Test Reports as outlined below at any time.

Getting, Building and Installing a Release Candidate

Release candidates are available from our git repository at

git://xenbits.xenproject.org/xen.git (tag 4.8.0-<rc>)
