Announcing Xen Project 4.7 RC and Test Day Schedule

By May 11, 2016 March 4th, 2019 Announcements

Yesterday we created Xen 4.7 RC2 and will release a new release candidate every Wednesday, until we declare a release candidate as the final candidate and cut the Xen 4.7 release. We will also hold a Test Day every Friday for the release candidate that was released the Wednesday prior to the Test Day. This means we will have Test Days on May 13th, 20th, 27th and June 3rd. Your testing is still valuable on other days, so please feel free to send Test Reports as outlined below at any time.

Release candidates are available from our git repository at
git://xenbits.xen.org/xen.git (tag 4.7.0-<rc>)
