This information will be mirrored on the Xen 4.4 Roadmap wiki page:

Rather than try to predict precisely what will make it into what
release (which was something of a disaster last release), I'm just
going to borrow a term from the Agile world and call all uncompleted
features the "Backlog".  I'll still track who is doing what, and when
we get close, what state things seem to be in.

As mentioned in another e-mail, we'll also be working on improving the
regression tester.  Feel free to join us.

And as always, if you are working on a feature / bug that you want
tracked, please respond to this e-mail.

As discussed elsewhere, I am proposing a 6-month release cycle.  Xen
4.3 was released on 9 July.  That would give us a release on 9 January
2014.  This is fairly close after the Christmas season, so I propose
to make the estimated release date later, on 21 January, giving a few
extra weeks for the holiday season:

* Feature freeze: 18 October 2013
* Code freezing point: 8 November 2013
* First RC: 26 November 2013
* Release: 21 January 2014

Feedback on the estimated dates  is welcome.
