Updates to Xen Project Security Process

Before Christmas, the Xen Project ran a community consultation to refine its Security Problem Response Process.  We recently approved changes that, in essence, are tweaks to our existing process, which is based on a Responsible Disclosure philosophy.

Task management in XO

In the next-release, we display all the current task executed in all your servers. Concepts XenServer handles tasks. Basically, it's useful to track the progress of an ongoing action, like: a migration a VDI migration anyg asyn task which can be long Examples Our goal is to show you running tasks, in any page you currently are in XO.

XenServer at OpenStack Summit

It's coming up on time for OpenStack Summit Vancouver where OpenStack developers and administrators will come together to discuss what it means and takes to run a successful cloud based on OpenStack technologies. As in past Summits, there will be a realistic focus on KVM based deployments due to KVM, or more precisely libvirt, having "Group A" status within the compute driver test matrix. XenServer currently has "Group B" status, and when you note that the distinction between A and B really boils down to which can gate a commit, there is no logical reason why XenServer shouldn't be a... gets a refresh
