Re: [Xen-users] What do you do for Xen 4.2?

There is security flaw but beside RHEL we dont see response on other
vendors yet.

Is xen.org official tarbal updated yet?

Both gitco.de and choon.net - there is no update yet.
Even alpinelinux.org which I am very interested in has no xen
hypervisor update yet.
Another Xen 4.1.2 repo
is not updated too.

I don have Xenserver by citrix - is their product updated?

For 4.1.2 seems like only viable options are Debian Squeezy and Ubuntu
12.04 right now.
