Hi all!

We just uploaded the first release candidate of Proxmox VE 2.0 (new ISO and also updated the repository). Just run "aptitude update && aptitude full-upgrade" to update from a previous beta, same as always.

This version can be upgraded to upcoming 2.0 releases including the stable release without problems. Its also the first 2.0 release which is based on a stable Kernel.

(Upgrading from 1.9 to 2.0 is not yet supported but will be possible via upgrade script.)

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

New Features

- Role based user- and permission management for all objects (VM´s, storages, nodes, etc.)
- Support for multiple authentication sources
  • Microsoft Active Directory
  • LDAP
  • Linux PAM
  • Proxmox VE internal authentication
- New Kernel, based on vzkernel-2.6.32-042stab049.6.src.rpm
- vzdump uses now LZO compression by default (faster)
- Countless bug fixes
