New features in Proxmox Test Repository
Category : Tech News
Proxmox uses two main repositories (if you exclude the Enterprise repository) to release updates to Proxmox servers around the world. The usual repository pve-no-subscription is used to release updates for the Proxmox VE platform that are usually stable and tested. The other repository is the pvetest repository that contains new code that has not yet been thoroughly tested by the community. Updates in the pvetest repository should never be used in production, but are a great way to give something back to the Proxmox community by testing the code in a development environment and to see what new features are up and coming.
Martin Maurer sent an email to the Proxmox mailing list stating that a rift of changes and new features have been released to the pvetest repository and are available for download.
If you would like to use the pvetest repository on your Proxmox installation you will need to add the test repository source to your configuration. Remember, this is not recommended for production servers.
The notable features include:
- A new Proxmox VE Firewall for the host and guests.
- A new non-Java Html5 Console
- Two-factor authentication
Keep an eye out for the official release, but we can speculate that a new version of Proxmox is just on the horizon containing these new updates.
