    Xen 4.1 released yesterday


    I'm forwarding the Keir Fraser announcement as it came form the xen-devel list:

    The Xen team is pleased to announce the release of Xen 4.1.

    The result of nearly 12 months of development, new features include:
    * A re-architected and improved XL toolstack replacing XM/XEND
    * Prototype credit2 scheduler designed for latency-sensitive workloads and
    very large systems.
    * CPU Pools for advanced partitioning.
    * Support for large systems (>255 processors)
    * Support for x86 Advanced Vector eXtension (AVX).
    * New Memory Access API enabling integration of 3rd party security
    solutions into Xen virtualized environments.
    * Many IOMMU fixes (both Intel VT-d IOMMU and AMD IOMMU).
    * Many toolstack and buildsystem fixes for Linux and NetBSD hosts.
    * Thirdparty libs: libvirt driver for libxl has been merged to upstream
    * HVM guest PXE boot enhancements, replacing gPXE with iPXE.
    * Even better stability through our new automated regression tests.

    Detailed release notes, including a more extensive feature list:

    Hopefully, Xen kernel patches will continue to slowly be upstreamed in releases. Kernel 2.6.39 should see a completely working dom0 with HDD backend support, as patches went in during the merge window.
