Cloudmin 5.9 released

Cloudmin version 5.9 is now available for download from our YUM and APT repositories. Existing users should see a message on the Cloudmin Information page after logging in, prompting to upgrade to the new release.

This update contains several new features, including :

  • The DNS roundrobin page now has an option to limit the number of IP addresses to include in the resulting DNS entries, to allow the simple configuration of DNS-based failover. DNS roundrobins can also include an arbitrary list of IP addresses, which do not necessarily have to be Cloudmin managed systems.
  • Disks on Xen, KVM and Citrix systems can now be excluded from backups on the Edit Disk page, and using the modify-disk API command. Swap disks are now also automatically excluded.
  • When adding a Xen, KVM or other host system, the hostname is now selected first which makes the host registration use the correct LVM volume groups and network bridges.
  • Proxy balancers can now also be configured on the DNS roundrobins page, if you have a system running Virtualmin. This allows a single website to be served by multiple backend systems, which get updated depending on their status.

It also fixes several minor bugs found since the last release. As always, please report any problems you find in this new version via the issue tracker.
