Xen Project 4.6 RC2 Test Day is September 1, 2015

Join 4.6 Release Candidate Testing on September 1, 2015

39833137_mAlthough the Xen Project performs automated testing through the project’s Test Lab, we also depend on manual testing of release candidates by our users. Our Test Days help insure that upcoming releases are ready for production. It is particularly important that our users test out the upcoming release in their own environment. In addition, functional testing of features (in particular those which can’t be automated), stress-testing, edge case testing and performance testing are important for a new release.

Xen 4.6 Release Candidate Testing

A few weeks ago, Xen 4.6 went into code freeze and Xen 4.6 RC2 is now ready for testing. With this in mind the Test Day for Xen 4.6 RC2 has been set for next Tuesday, September 1, 2015.

Subsequent Test Days are expected to be scheduled roughly ever other week until Xen 4.6 is ready for release.

USENIX ’08 Xen Training Session

As part of Xen Summit being co-located with the USENIX Annual Technical Conference in Boston, Xen.org is hosting a 1 day training session on the Xen hypervisor. Thanks to everyone who offered their assistance to run the training session. The session is currently listed at http://www.usenix.org/events/usenix08/training/tutonefile.html#s4 with Todd Deshane and Patrick Wilbur from Clarkson University leading the effort with myself in limited support. The training is being held Sunday June 22 and everyone in the community is invited to attend.


Xen Summit Boston 2008 Registration Live

The Xen Summit Boston 2008 registration site is live at https://db.usenix.org/cgi-bin/Conference/xen08/reg.cgi. The event is held over two days, June 23 – 24 at the Sheraton Boston Hotel and a $75 discount is offered to anyone wishing to also attend the USENIX Annual Technical Conference. If you have any questions, please add them to the Comments below so I can answer for the community. I will also be putting out an email to the usual xen.org mailing lists.

Finally, the event costs $250 which is standard for previous Xen Summits and all monies collected will be used to cover costs of the room rental, audio/visual equipment, food, evening out on the 23rd, etc. In the past, students received discounts and I will continue that tradition. Please contact me directly if you are a student interested in attending.
