Xen Project Hypervisor Version 4.14 brings added security and performance
SAN FRANCISCO, July 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Xen Project, an open source hypervisor hosted at the Linux Foundation, today announced the release of Xen Project Hypervisor 4.14, which introduces Linux stubdomains, better nested performance, more robust live patching and reflects contributions from across the community and ecosystem. This release also continues the fundamental shift for Xen, which was outlined in version 4.13, to make it increasingly resistant to side-channel attacks and hardware issues.
"Xen Project Hypervisor 4.14 is a clear example of important investments from companies and community members to move the project forward," said George Dunlap, Xen Project Advisory Board Chair. "We continue to see broad participation from many companies, which is validation of the important role Xen plays in the open-source virtualization space: a project focused solely on virtualization, with a mature code base and community."
Key updates and improvements include:
Embedded and Safety-Critical
Support for new platforms
Xen Hypervisor version 4.14 also includes improvements to hypervisor build, x2APIC mode, mem sharing, altp2m, x86 boot path, microcode handling, libxl event handling, xenstore, xentop, network hotplug scripts and more.
Ongoing work on upcoming features
