    Hi all!

    We just released the second beta of Proxmox VE 2.0 (new ISO and also updated the repository). Just run "aptitude update && aptitude dist-upgrade" to update from the first beta.

    A big Thank-you to our active community for all feedback, testing, bug reporting and patch submissions.

    New Features

    - Backup and Restore
    • GUI and CLI, works for OpenVZ containers and KVM VM´s
    • "Backup Now" via GUI
    • Complete new backup scheduler
    • All jobs can be monitored as “Recent tasks”
    • vzdump package is obsolete, all code went into pve-manager package
    - OpenVZ

    • vswap support
    • Improved init.log (shows startup logs of a OpenVZ container)

    - Simple File Manager
    • Upload ISO images and templates via browser
    • No size limit anymore, you can upload DVD iso to all storage types via browser, even BD works
