Xen Project 4.4.3 Maintenance Release is Available

I am pleased to announce the release of Xen 4.4.3. We recommend that all users of the 4.4 stable series update to this latest maintenance release.

Xen 4.4.3 is available immediately from its git repository:

    xenbits.xenproject.org/gitweb/?p=xen.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/stable-4.4
    (tag RELEASE-4.4.3)

or from the Xen Project download page at www.xenproject.org/downloads/xen-archives/xen-44-series/xen-443.html.

This release contains many bug fixes and improvements. For example:

  • A number of bug fixes that affected libvirt, in particular when used with OpenStack (this release contains all changes that we use in the Xen Project OpenStack CI loop; also see related OpenStack news, Latest News on Xen Support in libvirt & Xen and OpenStack);
  • Stability improvements to CPUPOOL handling, in particular when used with different schedulers;
  • Stability improvements to EFI support on some x86 platforms;
  • Security fixes since the release of Xen 4.4.2

For a complete list of changes in this release, please check lists of changes on the download page.

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.
