Xen 4.4 has made it out into the world today after being under development for the better part of the year and seeing more than one thousand changes.

Xen 4.4 provides stable ARM support, improved libvirt support for libxl, a new scalable event channel interface, and many other changes. I've already written at length before about the big improvements to Xen 4.4 within Xen 4.4 Is On Approach With Many Features and Xen 4.4 Will Be Riding High With New Features.

Details on today's Xen 4.4 official release can be found via the Xen.org blog and the updated virtualization software can be downloaded from XenProject.org.
