Many significant improvements have been made to Xen and Linux for the ARM architecture since September 2012, when initial support for Xen on ARM was introduced in the kernel. The number of contributors considerably increased as the number of different companies behind them. Xen on ARM has become a true multivendor project. Today Linux 3.11 can run on Xen on ARM as a DomU or Dom0, 32-bit or 64-bit, with one or more CPUs. Xen 4.3, out since July 2013, is the first hypervisor release to support ARMv7 and ARMv8 platforms. This talk will discuss the current status of the project, the principal technical advancements achieved during the last year of development and the problems still left unsolved. It will relate the experience of porting Xen to many new ARM SoCs and working with multiple hardware vendors in the ARM ecosystem, within and outside the Linaro Enterprise working Group.
