Today, we created Xen 4.9 RC1 and will release a new release candidate every week, until we declare a release candidate as the final candidate and cut the Xen 4.9 release. We will also hold a Test Day every TUESDAY for the release candidate that was released the week prior to the Test Day starting from RC2. Note that RC’s are announced on the following mailing lists: xen-announce, xen-devel and xen-users. This means we will have Test Days on April 25th, May 2nd, 9th and 16th. Your testing is still valuable on other days, so please feel free to send Test Reports as outlined below at any time.
