Proxmox VE 7.2 has already been released and these are its news

The launch of the new version of Proxmox Virtual Environment 7.2, a specialized Linux distribution based on Debian GNU/Linux aimed at deploying and maintaining virtual servers using LXC and KVM, and capable of acting as a replacement for products such as VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, and the Citrix hypervisor.

Proxmox VE provides the means to implement a turnkey web-managed industrial-grade virtual server system to manage hundreds or even thousands of virtual machines.

Main new features of Proxmox VE 7.2

In this new version, which is introduced from Proxmox VE 7.2, the system base is synchronized with Debian 11.3, plus Linux kernel version 5.15 is included, along with updates to QEMU 6.2, LXC 4.0, Ceph 16.2.7, OpenZFS 2.1.4, updated LXC container templates, as well as new templates for Ubuntu 22.04, Devuan 4.0 and Alpine 3.15.

In the ISO image, the memtest86+ memory integrity test utility is replaced with a completely rewritten version 6.0b that supports UEFI and modern memory types such as DDR5, plus support for error-correcting encoding has been added to Ceph FS. , which allows to recover lost blocks.

Other changes that stand out in this new version is that Improvements have been made to the web interface. The backup settings section has been redesigned. Added the ability to transfer private keys via the GUI to an external Ceph cluster, plus added support for reallocating a virtual machine disk or a container partition to another guest on the same host.

We can also find that added support for the VirGL driver, which is based on the OpenGL API and provides a virtual GPU for 3D rendering on the guest system without excluding direct access to the physical GPU. VirtIO and VirGL support the SPICE remote access protocol by default.

On the other hand, it is highlighted that added support for defining backup job logging templates, where, for example, you can use substitutions with the name of a virtual machine ({{guestname}}) or a cluster ({{cluster}}) to make it easier to find and separate.

Besides that, the cluster offers the possibility to configure via the web interface the desired range of values ​​for the new virtual machine or container identifiers (VMIDs).

To make it easy to rewrite the Rust parts of Proxmox VE and Proxmox Mail Gateway, the perlmod box package is included, which allows Rust modules to be exported as Perl packages. The code for scheduling events (next-event) was unified with Proxmox Backup Server, which was translated to use the perlmod (Perl-to-Rust) link. In addition to days of the week, time, and time ranges, support for binding to specific dates and times.

Of the other changes that stand out in this new version:

  • Provides the ability to override some basic restores from backup settings, such as guest system name or memory settings.
  • A new job-init handler has been added to the backup process that can be used to start the preparatory work.
  • The enhanced local resource manager scheduler (pve-ha-lrm) does the work of running drivers. Increased the number of custom services that can be processed on a single node.
  • HA Cluster Simulator implements the skip-round command to simplify testing of race conditions.
  • Added "proxmox-boot-tool kernel pin" command to preselect the kernel version for the next boot, without having to select an item in the boot menu at boot time.
  • The ZFS installation image offers the ability to configure various compression algorithms (zstd, gzip, etc.).
  • Added a dark theme and online console to the Proxmox VE Android app.
