The current xen-2.0 tar ball and bk repo is hopefully going to be
the final before the official release announcement -- unless any
of you find any show-stopping bugs ;-) 

The repository has undergone a small reorganisation that's worth
being aware of: all the binaries produced by the build now go in
./dist/install rather than ./install as before. If you had
external links into ./install you'll need to adjust them
otherwise you'll carry on booting your old kernels!

There's also been a few changes to the build system.  Using 
'make dist' (or just plain 'make') should do the right thing
under most circumstances. If you want to rebuild everything from
scratch use 'make world'.  If you look at the top-level Makefile
you can set the KERNELS variable to control which Linux/NetBSD
kernels get built. You can also build arch-xen patches using the
'make mkpatches' target.

Over the last few days we've also put some serious effort into
the user manual, which you can view in either html or pdf.
There's also the beginnings of a new FAQ.

We'd be grateful if you could test and provide feedback ASAP.
