What’s New in OpenNebula 6.2 Beta 2

As we announced on October 6th about the OpenNebula 6.2 ‘Red Square’ Beta version, what’s going to be the second stable release of the new OpenNebula 6 series. As many of you already know, it comes with a number of amazing novelties (including the new edge features developed in the context of our ONEedge innovation project)! 🌎

Since that announcement, we’ve received very useful feedback from testers and developers in our Community, and we’d like to use this blog post to send them a big ‘thank you’ for helping us improve this upcoming version. As an open source project, we really appreciate the contributions and support we get from our Community, and being able to join efforts to produce the best open source cloud and edge platform in the market should make us all feel very proud! 👏

So, today we are announcing our Beta 2, which:

  • Provides better security parameters for Sunstone systemd unit file
  • Fixes slow transition from host DISABLED->MONITORED
  • Fixes error management in onedb live operations
  • Fixes labels on services
  • Fixes IP spoofing for IPv6 floating IPs in Virtual Routers
  • Fixes and extend actions covered by the IMPORTED_VMS_ACTIONS
  • New virt. network attributes METHOD and IP6_METHOD <vnet_template_context> propagated to the VM context <template_context> to select the method used to configure the IP addresses on particular NICs inside the guest VMs (e.g., static, DHCP)
  • Fixes a number of issues present in the first Beta, related mainly to the new Sunstone GUI

These days the OpenNebula team will still be in “bug-fixing mode”, in preparation for the upcoming Release Candidate. So, testers and developers are more than welcome to keep sending feedback for the final release! 🤓 Please check the known issues before submitting an issue through GitHub. Also note that being a beta, there is no migration path from the previous stable version (6.0.x) nor migration path to the final stable version (6.2.0). A list of open issues can be found in the GitHub development portal.

🚀 Download OpenNebula 6.2 and don’t forget to give our latest Sunstone GUI a whirl! We would highly appreciate your feedback 🤗
