Hmm, I'm not sure if skipping 4.3 is a good idea..
I believe the following distros/products are (or will be) shipping Xen 4.3:
- Next version of XenServer
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
- Fedora 20
- OpenSuse 13.1
It's obviously easier to live, troubleshoot and apply/backport important fixes
when there are multiple parties doing it for the same(ish) codebase and sharing experiences :)
