We are very pleased to announce the general availability of Proxmox VE 5.4.

Built on Debian 9.8 (Stretch) and a specially modified Linux Kernel 4.15, this version of Proxmox VE introduces a new wizard for installing Ceph storage via the user interface, and brings enhanced flexibility with HA clustering, hibernation support for virtual machines, and support for Universal Second Factor (U2F) authentication.

The new features of Proxmox VE 5.4 focus on usability and simple management of the software-defined infrastructure as well as on security management.

Countless bugfixes and more smaller improvements are listed in the release notes.
