Fedora Test Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 5
Name        : xen
Version     : 3.0.2                      
Release     : 0.FC5                  
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.  Note that the Xen technology is still
in development, and this RPM has received extremely little testing.
Don't be surprised if this RPM eats your data, drinks your coffee
or makes fun of you in front of your friends.

Update Information:

This updates the xen userspace tools to the 3.0.2-2 release.
 Additional changes have been made to make managing domains
using libvirt work better.
