There’s much interest around the new major release of Xen because of the rich roadmap that has been proposed and published this summer.

Now we community has a tentative release schedule: January/February 2010.

The news was given by Keir Fraser, Senior Architect at Citrix, during his speech at the Xen Summit in Asia just a few days ago.

Fraser also told that the Xen.org team plans to maintain two branches (3.4.x and 4.x) until the new one is mature enough for the switchover and that a new major release is planned every six-nine months.
