Xen Project Test Day for 4.6 RC4 Scheduled for October 1

Our Fourth (and Possibly Final) 4.6 Release Candidate to be Tested This Thursday

TestDayOur Xen Project Test Days help insure that upcoming releases are ready for production, beyond what our automated testing through our Test Lab can accomplish. It is particularly important that our users test out the upcoming release in their own environment. We rely on your functional testing of features, stress-testing, edge case testing, and performance testing to prove that the code is ready for consumption. And this is your opportunity to verify that the new code will continue to work well in your particular situation.

Xen Project 4.6 Release Candidate 4 Testing

Continuing our current release cycle, the Test Day for Xen Project 4.6 RC4 has been set for Thursday, October 1, 2015.

This may be the final RC before release, so the time to test the software is now!
