Cloudmin 8.0 released

Cloudmin version 8.0 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 the following major features, and a bunch of bugfixes and other minor improvements :

  • Additional SSH keys for a system can now be viewed and selected on the Change Password page, set with the passwd-system API command, and displayed with the list-system-keys command.

  • Added APIs that allow Cloudmin to define the preferred left and right frame contents for a theme, rather than requiring theme authors to write code for this.

  • Added the vnc-system API comment for opening up a port to the graphical console on a virtual system.

  • Improvements in Citrix Xen 6 and open source Xen 4 support.

As always, please report any bugs via our support tracker.

How long before this is in the repository? Nothing seems to have come through to my server yet.

It should already be out! Are you using the free version for Xen or KVM, or the pro version?

Pro version.

Also, which Linux distribution or OS is this on?

Ok, I can see what has happened. A particularly nasty bug is afflicting CentOS and yum where an updated package screws up the certificate for yum. It would seem that the package manager within Cloudmin was failing, however without any errors (therefore not detecting any new updates).
