    We are very happy to announce the final release of our Proxmox VE 5.1 - based on the latest Debian 9.2 and a modern Linux Kernel 4.13 with ZFS 0.7.2.

    With Proxmox VE 5.1 Ceph Luminous is finally production-ready and fully supported by the Proxmox support team. The new BlueStore storage backend for Ceph boosts performance (in some cases up to 2x for writes), got full data checksumming and built-in compression - BlueStore is the new default for OSDs.

    And as always we have included countless bugfixes and improvements on a lot of places.
