Hi all,

The Xen Project has just released Xen as the final instalment of
the xen 4.1 stable series. While I wouldn't recommend anyone to use it,
I have built and pushed it to the repos.

If anyone is still running Xen 4.1, I would recommend upgrading to 4.2
in the near future.

Original release announcement follows:

I am pleased to announce the release of Xen This is
available immediately from its git repository:
(tag RELEASE- or from the XenProject download page

Note that 4.1.6 didn't get released, as a build issue was found late
in the release process, when the 4.1.6 version number was already
irreversibly applied.

Note further that this is expected to be the last release of the 4.1
stable series.

This fixes the following critical vulnerabilities:
 * CVE-2013-1918 / XSA-45:
    Several long latency operations are not preemptible
 * CVE-2013-1952 / XSA-49:

 * CVE-2013-2078 / XSA-54:

 * CVE-2013-2194, CVE-2013-2195, CVE-2013-2196 / XSA-55:
    Multiple vulnerabilities in libelf PV kernel handling
 * CVE-2013-2072 / XSA-56:
    Buffer overflow in xencontrol Python bindings affecting xend

xenstore keys

 * XSA-61:

We recommend all users of the 4.1 stable series to update to this
latest point release.

Among many bug fixes and improvements:
 * addressing a regression from the fix for XSA-21
 * addressing a regression from the fix for XSA-46
 * bug fixes to low level system state handling, including certain
    hardware errata workarounds
