Hi Keir,

Nice to hear this information. I've downloaded the sources yesterday night and compiled them. Hope I'm bleeding edge now :)

Just one question, where can we download the "documentation" for Xen 3.2? i.e. documentation about how to configure the below mentioned new features, etc.

This has been a while coming, and represents the culmination of a lot of
work to improve architectural cleanliness 'under the hood', while also
providing a range of new user-visible features including:

 - Xen Security Modules (XSM)
 - ACPI S3 suspend-to-RAM support for the host system
 - Preliminary PCI pass-through support (using appropriate Intel or AMD
I/O-virtualisation hardware)
 - Preliminary support for a wider range of bootloaders in fully virtualised
(HVM) guests, using full emulation of x86 'real mode'.
 - Faster emulation of standard (non-super) VGA modes for HVM guests
 - Configurable timer modes for HVM guests, depending on how the guest OS
manages time-keeping
 - Many other changes and enhancements across all supported machine

You can get the source using mercurial from:

To extract your own source tarball:
 # hg clone http://xenbits.xensource.com/xen-3.2-testing.hg
 # cd xen-3.2-testing.hg
 # hg archive -t tgz -r RELEASE-3.2.0 ../xen-3.2.0.tar.gz

Pre-prepared source tarball and binary packages will soon be available from
the xen.org website.
