Farkas's version is KVM-84, which is the latest, and I have that running here on a clean install of CentOS 5.2 with one W2008 guest. Call it anecdotal evidence.
As for what will run on that version:
"we only test with intel hosts and a dozens of guests, but this is the first series which seems to stable and really usable"
However, if that version goes into a repository and existing production installations do an update then they may get a KVM version that doesn't work for them. Or maybe it works but only after a config change. Is that the issue? Maybe it should go in the testing repository then.
