Linux Integration Services 2.1 for Hyper-V reaches Release Candidate status

Just one month ago Microsoft finally released the first beta of a new Linux Integration Services package for Hyper-V which introduced the highly desired support for multiple vCPUs in Novell and Red Hat guest operating systems.

Linux Integration Services 2.1 has now reached the Release Candidate status and includes two additional features:

  • Heartbeat
    This provides a way for the host to detect if the guest is still running and responsive.
  • Pluggable Time Source
    A pluggable clock source module is included for a more accurate time source to the guest.
