We are pleased to announce the immediate availability for the Xen4
virtualisation stack for CentOS-6/x86_64

The software is delivered as a dedicated repository under
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6/xen4/
and were developed
with the help of the Xen Project, the Citrix Xen open-source
team, GoDaddy.com's Cloud Engineering team and Rackspace
Hosting.

Release Notes

Detailed release notes are publised on the CentOS wiki at:
http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/Xen4-01

We highly recommend everyone goes through this once, it explains
the process we use to update, howto get and apply security as
well as bugfix updates and policies around the packaging.

+++++++++++++++++++++++
Getting Started

We have tried to ensure we stay as close to upstream xen project
policy as much as possible and all docs published upstream should
still apply to the Xen4CentOS builds. To make getting started
easy and quick, we have also published a Quick Started guide
at: http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Xen/Xen4QuickStart

The Xen4CentOS virtualisation stack is available on CentOS-6
x86_64 only; and can be enabled by 'yum install centos-release-xen'
which will setup the repo; The QuickStart guide mentioned above
then has details on howto do the complete inital install.

+++++++++++++++++++++++
Getting involved and support

The xen4centos virtualisation stack is considered production
grade stable and supported via the CentOS community on irc
at #centos-virt on irc.freenode.net and the centos-virt list
at http://lists.centos.org/ ; All issue
reports should be
filed at http://bugs.centos.org/ against
CentOS-6/xen

Thanks and credits

I would like to thank the Lars Kurth at the Xen Project for
helping bootstrap the initiative that lead to this project;
Richard Sharp, Stefano Stabellini, James Bulpin and David Vrabel
