The imminent next Xen release introduces a host of important new features
including PV 32-on-64, HVM save/restore, and XenAPI 1.0. Now is a good time
to bump our version number and reclaim the redundant second digit!

We plan to rename the xen-3.0.5-testing.hg tree to xen-3.1.0-testing later
today. The release candidate will be renamed to 3.1.0-rc4. The final release
will be called 3.1.0 (as opposed to 3.0.5-0 in the old numbering scheme).
Further bug-fix releases in the 3.1 series will be called 3.1.x (as opposed
to 3.0.5-x in the old numbering scheme).

This change rationalises and simplifies our version numbering scheme. It
avoids the need for the fourth digit "-x", and incrementing the second
rather than third digit makes it clearer that large changes, not just bug
fixes, are incorporated in our quarterly major releases.

I think it is a good idea to update information at
http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/research/srg/netos/xen/downloads.html, because
many people still look at it first. It is quite outdated now.
