[Xen-devel] Xen 2.0.6 released!


The Xen team are pleased to announce the release of Xen 2.0.6 !

This release includes support for Linux versions and 2.4.30,
NetBSD 2.0 and FreeBSD 5.3, along with many bug fixes. In particular:

 * a fix to a nasty VM relocation bug
 * several AGP/DRM fixes
 * block device performance fix
 * CDROM and floppy fixes
 * better hyperthreading support
 * misc tool hardening and improved default security

We would recommend everyone to upgrade to 2.0.6 as soon as possible.
You can download the install and source tar balls from
http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/netos/xen/ and access the BK repository at

RPMs and a new demo CD will be available in due course.

Early in June we will be releasing the 3.0-testing series, which is the
first step toward the 3.0.0 release. There are a number of important
architectural changes in the 3.0 development tree, and we'll be creating
the testing series as soon as 32 bit x86 (<4GB) support has the full
feature superset of 2.0, with a good level of stability and enhanced
performance (including SMP guest support). Other ports such as x86_64
and x86 >8GB support will not have the same level of maturity, but
hopefully this will be achieved through extensive testing and continuing
development over the coming weeks.
