Among the changes with Xen Hypervisor 4.10 are:

- Support for users to set a maximum amount of CPU a VM can consume.

- Improvements to its "Null" scheduler.

- Better virtual machine introspection.

- Support for PV Calls with the back-end driver added in Linux 4.14.

- User-interface improvements.

- There's also now support for GRUB2 on 64-bit ARMv8-A, ARM ITS (Interrupt Translation Service), and SBSA UART emulation.

- Restructuring the x86 hypervisor code to reduce attack surfaces and make the code cleaner.
