Sorry, since choon.net mentioned here so I will answer.  All security
related I take it seriously and release packages accordingly mostly
within 24 hours after testing.  Read http://choonrpms.blogspot.com/
for more information.  Xen v4.0, v4.1 and even v4.2 (xen-unstable) are
released accordingly:

v4.0 - http://choonrpms.blogspot.com/2012/06/xen-404-215920-release.html
v4.1 - http://choonrpms.blogspot.com/2012/06/xen-413-233010-release.html
v4.2 - http://choonrpms.blogspot.com/2012/06/xen-420-254810-release.html

In fact, I update often for xen related packages.  I don't update such
information in my forum since I mentioned that I will post updates in
http://choonrpms.blogspot.com/ since 09 Mar 2012 SGT/GMT+8.

Hopefully this will clear any confusion or doubts.


Kindest regards,
