VIRTUALIZATION --
Intel quietly released the XenGT 2015-Q3 release at the end of October as the newest quarterly update to their mediated graphics passthrough solution for virtualization customers.

Intel has been working on Xen GT for a whole now as a mediated pass-through solution for Intel graphics hardware in the Linux virtualization space. Xen GT works with the Xen hypervisor as implied by the name while with this 2015'Q3 release the KVMGT code is part of this unified code repository.

XenGT though still has different branches of QEMU for supporting it versus KVMGT. This quarterly update also has a few bug fixes and improved 3D workload compatibility.

More details on XenGT 2015'Q3 can be found via the release announcement issued by Intel's Jike Song.
