Within the last month or so pvesh has changed from outputting json to "pretty" output by default. I'm trying to obtain json output again but cant figure out how; pvesh refers to format options:

Code:
# pvesh
USAGE: pvesh set <api_path> [OPTIONS] [FORMAT_OPTIONS]
  Call API PUT on <api_path>.
  <api_path> <string>
             API path.
  -noproxy   <boolean>
             Disable automatic proxying.
but I can find no documentation for options or format options anywhere. help!

Code:
pvesh(1)                                                 Proxmox Documentation                                                 pvesh(1)

NAME
       pvesh - shell interface to the Promox VE API

SYNOPSIS
       pvesh [get|set|create|delete|help] [REST API path] [--verbose]

DESCRIPTION
       pvesh provides a shell-like interface to the Proxmox VE REST API, in two different modes:

       interactive
           when called without parameters, pvesh starts an interactive client, where you can navigate in the different parts of the API

       command line
           when started with parameters pvesh will send a command to the corresponding REST url, and will return the JSON formatted
           output

EXAMPLES
       get the list of nodes in my cluster

       pvesh get /nodes

       get a list of available options for the datacenter

       pvesh help cluster/options -v

       set the HTMl5 NoVNC console as the default console for the datacenter

       pvesh set cluster/options -console html5
