Re: [Xen-devel] Please review the key 4.4 release docs

My thanks to those who have made adjustments to the docs so far.

One note which still needs clarification is this comment about ARM in 
http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Xen_Project_4.4_Feature_List :
> [TODO: clarify whether support has moved from tech preview to experimental or 
> supported]

So what is is the status of Xen Project on ARM?

Well we discussed it, but there were too many things still missing to
call it a properly supported feature: in particular, doubts about how
well shadow-on-hap would work, which would be a potential security
issue.  (On my to-do list is to collect these somewhere so we have a
clear set of criteria for moving nested HVM from "tech preview" to

It would be good to put something in the release note, however, to say
how much it has progressed.  I'll see what I can do.
