Subject Re: Apache CloudStack 4.2.0 (fifth round)
Date Mon, 16 Sep 2013 17:10:33 GMT
The stock image is actually from June 2013, I believe.  There is a
requirement for a new system vm in 4.2 to support some of the newer
features. It's absolutely necessary to use this image (or one with the
same capabilities) in KVM, maybe less so with Xen.
