Re: [Xen-devel] Xen 1.2 CD? & domain 0 op codes

We've delayed it until we have confirmation that the bug A. Tvrtko
observed is fixed. We believe it only effects a specific libc/libpthread
version used by SuSE, but we want to check that it is fixed.

Actually, the main reason it hasn't been officially released is
that we haven't had time to update the web pages, mess around
uploading to sourceforge etc...

I'm afraid the current ordering is fairly ad-hoc, with numbers
allocated as needed (though this tends to mean that related ones
are in groups). 

I think the need for backward compatibility trumps any advantage
in having a more logical grouping. 

Just pick a number, any number ;-) When/if you submit your
changes to the main-line Xen tree we can then change the number
if required, and then fix it stone for all time.
