Libvirt version 1.2.x (currently .1) not sure whether this may or may not change
until release. Xen ... at least 4.3.2 (not yet uploaded) but there has been some
interest (for the better Arm support) on 4.4. Depends a bit how soon/late the
release is compared to Trusty.
Anyway, I would like to make xl the default for new setups at least. I am
currently using it a lot together with virt-manager (though it has some odd ends
still) and I am being told that openstack integration is done via libvirt at
least (not sure they mandate the stack being xl or not).
