The Linux Foundation | 20 November 2023
New release to include updates from AMD, Arm, BUGSENG, EPAM, Vates, XenServer, and other contributors.
SAN FRANCISCO – NOVEMBER 20, 2023 – The Xen Project, an open source hypervisor hosted at the Linux Foundation, today announced the release of Xen Project Hypervisor 4.18 with architecture enhancements for High Performance Computing (HPC) and Machine Learning (ML) applications, as well as higher security and performance features. As always, a loyal and very active Xen Project community with developers from many organizations and many parts of the world contributed to this release.
Open Community Initiative Updates
"EPAM continues to invest in the development of the Xen hypervisor for safety applications in mixed-criticality systems. The 4.18 release marks a decade since we first presented a concept of the Xen hypervisor in the automotive domain at the Xen Developer Summit 2013. Today, Xen continues to be the best option for embedded virtualization platforms,” said Alex Agizim, CTO of Automotive & Embedded Systems at EPAM Systems, Inc. "Xen paves the way for generic FOSS, like the Linux kernel, to be safely used in complex automotive, aerospace, and industrial systems alongside mission-critical domains, with faster time-to-market and lower overall development costs.”
"The various security improvements, especially around MISRA-C, are helping Xen deliver the secure virtualization technology that the industry needs today," commented Olivier Lambert, CEO of Vates. "This release does not stop there as it continues moving forward with better support of the Arm and RISC-V architectures, two innovative platforms that will become more and more significant in the coming years.”
