The relevant F10 release notes are also in progress here:

Dom0 will not be there at release time:

Some Fedora users lack HVM extensions in hardware and are stuck with Xen
and F8 for now. I think putting new releases in F8-test-only seems like
a nice conservative compromise.

I was hoping libvirt 0.4.6 would fix the issue of virsh losing track of
domUs until xend is restarted, but after installing the test build on my
F8 dom0 I found that wasn't the case.

People can post their experiences with a build in Bodhi.
