Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 6
Name        : xen
Version     : 3.0.3
Release     : 6.fc6
Summary     : Xen is a virtual machine monitor
Description :
This package contains the Xen hypervisor and Xen tools, needed to
run virtual machines on x86 systems, together with the kernel-xen*
packages.  Information on how to use Xen can be found at the Xen
project pages.

Virtualisation can be used to run multiple versions or multiple
Linux distributions on one system, or to test untrusted applications
in a sandboxed environment.

Update Information:

Updated Xen to support the new paravirtual framebuffer
protocol in upstream Xen 3.0.4 releases, allowing new guests
to be run on 3.0.3 based Dom0. Also improves the error
reporting in the virtual device hotplug scripts.

Updated libvirt to deal with new paravirt framebuffer
configuration format.
