xm test code is still available in the xen code

But all the docs and mailing list reference to it are quite out of date:

There are live CDs available [1], but as far as automated testing goes
you may want to check on xen-devel, there are a couple of companies
that send in weekly reports

For example:
http://markmail.org/search/?q=vmx+status+report#query:vmx status

Hope that helps.


Under: http://runningxen.com/resources/#chapter2
Xen Live CD: 
cached copy: http://runningxen.com/download/livecd-xen-3.0.3-0.iso
VMKNOPPIX: http://unit.aist.go.jp/itri/knoppix/vmknoppix/index-en.html
Under: http://runningxen.com/resources
under the heading "Resources Since First Edition"
VMKnoppix Xen LiveCD (other virtualization system support and lots of
other neat features)
The 3.03 version is still the latest released liveCD from Xen Source.
The VMKnoppix live CDs are a good alternative, with newer Xen packages
