Hello XenServer community,
It is our pleasure to announce the release of 7.4, the latest update in the CR release track.
XenServer 7.4 offers customers following the CR release track access to the latest product features designed to enhance application, desktop and server virtualization deployments. For customers running XenServer 7.3 (up until now the most recent CR), Citrix recommends upgrading to 7.4 at the earliest convenience to maintain support.
For customers following the LTSR release track (starting with XenServer 7.1 LTSR), Citrix recommends reviewing the XenServer 7.4 release notes to determine if 7.4 would deliver additional benefits to their virtual environments.
Note: The decision to embark on the CR release track entails the adoption of new CRs as they are made available in order to maintain support, as hotfixes for each CR are only made available for up to 4 months after the next CR is released. Please see the XenServer Product Lifecycle page for details.
XenServer 7.4 is available in the following editions:
- Free Edition
- Standard Edition
- Enterprise Edition
IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR XENSERVER FREE EDITION USERS
