Hi Guys!

We are going to release Virtuozzo 7 and OpenVZ 7 not later than this July.
Thank you for your interest and stay tuned! 
Best regards,
Vladimir Porokhov

>I don't know the answer... as a user and not a dev... but I would say deploy OpenVZ Legacy now... and when V7 goes GA... test it out... get to know it (or do that with the pre-releases)... and when you feel comfortable with it, migrate the containers from OL to V7... and then you can wipe your OL hosts and turn them into V7 hosts.  You'd only really need one spare and then just cycle through them one by one... but I realize I've always operated at a very low scale and there are some really big scale operators out there.
>In any event... who is ready to totally convert even on day one of a GA?  Who even advises doing so even if it is convenient?  I'm fairly confident that the transition from OL to V7 with container migration should be fairly smooth... even without live migration it shouldn't be too much trouble if planned for.
