Supported Releases

Having a supported platform is crucial for mission critical applications, and for those who are interested in potentially obtaining product support for XenServer from Citrix, use of the installer in this section will qualify for support services.

Public Hotfixes

Service Packs

    • XS62ESP1 - Contains rollup of all hotfixes from XS62E001 through XS62E012 and adds support for Microsoft Windows 8.1 and Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2.  Future hotfixes may have 6.2 SP1 as a pre-requisite.

Pre-release Binaries

If you are interested in testing the most recent pre-release version of XenServer, you may learn more about the XenServer Creedence Alpha as well as download the installation media from our pre-release download section.  We are very interested in receiveing feedback on the XenServer Creedence Alpha, but support is only available from the community.

Developer Binaries

If you are interested in the development repositories for XenServer, these are accessible and available on the developer page under Software -> Source Code.

Development Snapshots

In addition to the sources, we create a nightly snapshot from trunk and upload it.  This nightly snapshot is ideal for those who are designing a product to work with XenServer and who wish to ensure they are testing early and often as we evolve the product.  The most recent snapshots can be found on our development snapshot page, and as always we remind users of our snapshots that upgrading from a snapshot to a released version may not always be possible.

Third Party Management Options

Non-Windows GUIs for XenServer

While XenCenter is open source, many of our users (and especially developers) would prefer not to keep a Windows machine running just so that they can use XenCenter. There aren't many Linux/Mac capable GUI clients for XenServer, but hopefully one of these will work for you.

  • Xen Orchestra is a new, open-source, web-based GUI for XenServer.
  • XAC is a prototypical web-based GUI for XenServer that the XenServer API team is working on. We don't intend this to be used in production itself, but rather to give a good example of how to build a Javascript/HTML5 client for XenServer. A major selling point is that it is completely browser-based.
