The 4.5 release no a minor "point" update: it is one of the most feature-rich releases in the project's history. It contains several important additions. Most notably, new Xen PVH virtualization mode now supports running as dom0, enhanced support for Remus, significant ARM architecture updates, security improvements, real-time scheduling, support for Intel Cache Monitoring Technology (CMT), as well as improvements for automotive and embedded use-cases. Other enhancements include additional support for FreeBSD, systemd support, additional libvirt support, the release of Mirage OS 2.0, and more.

Besides giving an overview of Xen 4.5, we will explain the project's roadmap process and share what's ahead for 2015: such as improved OpenStack integration and hotpatching (applying security fixes without the need to reboot).
