When a new OpenVZ 7 kernel release, is there any notification and/or ChangeLog for reference?

As I remember, there is a mailing list for OpenVZ 6 kernel, and details will be published onto website.

Is there similar for OpenVZ 7 series?

Thank you very much for your kind attention.

Dear George,
unlike from OpenVz6, OpenVz7 uses the same packages as Virtuozzo 7,
updates of stable branch in OpenVz7 are synchronised with Virtuozzo 7 updates,
so for OpenVz7 you can use regular Virtuozzo Advisories:

Virtuozzo Advisory Archive

VZA-2018-037, Important product update: Virtuozzo 7.0 Update 7 Hotfix 3 (7.0.7-461)
(it was released yesterday in Vz7 and it should be published in Openvz today-tomorrow)

VZA-2018-023, Kernel update: new kernel 3.10.0-693.21.1.vz7.46.7, Virtuozzo 7.0 Update 7 Hotfix 2 (7.0.7-453)

VZA-2018-021, Product update: Virtuozzo 7.0 Update 7 Hotfix 1 (7.0.7-445)

Thank you,
Vasily Averin

Beware where and what you download and use! The OpenVZ7 and the Vz7 are NOT the same product. One is open source, the other one is comes with an aggressive licensing agreement.

Take a look at this thread: tart=0

Did you carefully read the eula? Are you sure?

Especially this part:

"2.6. Audit Rights. During the term of this Agreement and for two (2)
years after termination or expiration of this Agreement, Virtuozzo may
audit, upon written notice to you, your books, records, and computing
devices to determine your compliance with this Agreement and your
payment of the applicable license fees, if any, for the Software. In
the event that any such audit reveals an underpayment by you of more
than five percent (5%) of the license fees due to Virtuozzo in the
period being audited, or that you have breached any term of this
Agreement, then, in addition to any other rights and remedies
Virtuozzo may have, you will promptly pay to Virtuozzo any
underpayments plus the cost of the audit."

Yes, It written by lawyers to prevent X and Y and Z. And viola suddenly OpenVZ7 becomes non-existant. You'll not receive any update, any notification, any help unless you accept the EULA and have a support contract. But thanks to GPL you can always have the kernel source, and you can fix every problems (including every changes they made - the changelog is huge), you can compile itself, and you can use it for free!
