New ticket statuses on bugs.xenserver.org

I just wanted to mention that we've created a couple of new ticket statuses on bugs.xenserver.org, which should make it clearer where a ticket has got to in its lifecycle. Acknowledged Issue will be used when we've done initial triage on the issue, determined that it is a genuine problem, and made a ticket in our internal issue tracker for it.

Even when an issue is acknowledged, there is no guarantee when it will be fixed; however,...

INTRODUCTION A XenApp virtual machine (VM) that supports two or more concurrent graphics processing units (GPUs) has a number of advantages over running separate VM instances,...
