This is the plan right now.

A bit too early. Basically there are two major features missing:
- use HVM/PVHv2 instead of PV for everything
- GUI tools (new manager)
Besides that, there is _a lot_ of minor issues. And actually those minor
issues (like: time synchronization does not work) are most annoying and
IMO blocking daily usage.
Anyway, I'll write soon some more elaborate status update on Qubes 4.0,
on qubes-devel mailing list.

In the current state of PVH(v2 aka HVMlite) in Xen, we've chosen to wait a
with this, and for Qubes 4.0 use HVM with (still PV based) stubdomains.
When PVHv2 support will be mature enough, we'll smoothly switch to it
later (as a configuration option first).

Both are supported and both should work. I think the only place that may
have some impact on compatibility is "Update VM" (the VM for downloading
dom0 updates) - here having the same tool (dnf) as in dom0 (Fedora)
makes it more compatible - for example you can issue any action (search,
list, etc.) instead of just "download all updates" / "install specific

Currently no binary package is uploaded to yum/apt repository (this is
where security-testing, unstable, current-testing, current repositories
are) for Qubes 4.0.
As for the source code - in most repositories "master" branch already
contains Qubes 4.0 code. There are few (but important!) exceptions,
where "core3-devel" branch should be used. We're working right now on
moving remaining code to "master" branch.

Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
