We're happy to announce the first beta release for the Proxmox VE 6.x family! It's based on the great Debian Buster (Debian 10) and a 5.0 kernel, QEMU 4.0, ZFS 0.8.1, Ceph 14.2.1, Corosync 3.0 and countless improvements and bugfixes.

The new installer supports ZFS root via UEFI, for example you can boot a ZFS mirror on NVMe SSDs (using systemd-boot instead of grub). The full release notes will be available together with the final release announcement.

This Proxmox VE release is a beta version. If you test or upgrade, make sure to create backups of your data first.
