Steve, earlier when this was in testing, you mentioned the Dom0 and Domu both needed to be running this kernel. Is that still the case? I know I have clients running older kernels in thier DomU.

Hi all,  

Kernel 3.11.1 has been pushed as stable now. I've updated the initial  
testing package to 3.11.1 and am building it for release after no  
initial testing issues.  

There is one small change in behaviour. The kernel-xen package can now  
be used in both the Dom0, DomU or baremetal installs. This is a benefit  
as in some cases there can be a large performance increase when using  
3.11 on both Dom0 and DomU due to improvements in Xen drivers.  

This means that for new installs, to guarantee a correct install, xen  
and kernel-xen should be installed in separate stages.  

I have updated the install guide to reflect this:  

Current Changelogs for 3.11.x:  
* Sun Sep 15 2013 Steven Haigh <netwiz at crc.id.au> - 3.11.1-1  
- Update to inital stable release 3.11.1  
- Full Changelog:  

* Fri Sep 06 2013 Steven Haigh <netwiz at crc.id.au> - 3.11.0-2  
- Add check for /boot/xen.gz symlink to avoid adding hypervisor lines to  
a DomU  
or baremetal install.  

* Thu Sep 05 2013 Steven Haigh <netwiz at crc.id.au> - 3.11.0-1  
- Initial update to kernel 3.11.
