Congratulate for realise.
It is great news.
And I had forgotten to mention the new welcome page!
See why we need to improve the documentation together real fast? There's a big button that will send people directly to it!

@stormi, would you please let us know what the impact is of the removed packages?
What functions are lost by not having xapi-clusterd?
What functions are lost by not having sm-transport-lib?
What functions are lost by not having xapi-storage-plugins?
What functions are lost by not having livepatch-utils?
Also - it seems apparent that Citrix is making every effort to close source the project. Are there any attorney types on the list that understand the licensing requirements of LGPL? I'm not expert on this at all - but the official "gpl" page seems to indicate that once distributed, it is open. https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#GPLRequireSourcePostedPublic
- No GFS2 (closed source)
- No Xen live patching (until we do that ourselves because it's in Open Source Xen)
That's pretty much it.
Regarding the legal stuff, I know there is some specialized attorney, but we don't have the resources to start a legal war with Citrix. I don't know if EFF can help.
@revtel The version they released in 7.5 is still LGPL, they can't undo that. But if they own the code of a piece of software (all of it, which means they wrote it or that anyone who contributed to it signed a agreement to transfer the ownership of their code to Citrix), they can change the license of subsequent releases. So it's likely to be legal. Anyone else who'd make changes to the LGPL version would be bound by the license and have to release their work under the same license, but the primary copyright owner can do what they want.

Update both hosts from 7.5 to 7.6 Beta via yum
PVS accelerator looks to have survived the update.
Only bug so far .. XCP-Centre from the 7.6 servers is v7.5.0.
@allootikeechaat can you please test https://github.com/xcp-ng/xenadmin/releases/tag/v7.6.0-RC1

for information ! I have 4 servers different in hardware, installed the xcp-ng-7.5.0-2 version, used from localhost http://192.168.20.172/XCP-ng-Center.msi. I could connect to one as I could not to the other three. web XOA has connected to all 4 without errors. downloaded XCP-ng-Center-188.8.131.52, the problem remained.
Now I go to the forum, see link XCP-ng-Center-184.108.40.206-RC1 shake tested. All 4 servers are well connected !!!
@hardman hmmm .....

I have not tested the 7.6 beta yet, however When I just did an upgrade from XS 7.5 to XS 7.6 the upper-left corner retained XS 7.5 versioning, while the stats field and Xencenter/XCP-ng Center displayed 7.6. You may want to look into it.
@mpyusko it will fix itself automatically, some sort of cache.

@stormi it was persistent after reboot.

Congrats on this release! I've done a 'yum update' on a XS 7.5 on a host with a Qlogic fibre channel HBA. It updated to 7.6 and the HBA works as expected. Qlogic management tools are useful if one wants to tweak HBA parameters or update its firmware. They are not needed for everyday usage.
XCP-ng Center 7.6 RC2
Please test and report back!
XCP-ng 7.6 RC1 is now available: https://xcp-ng.org/forum/topic/488/xcp-ng-7-6-rc1-available
XCP-ng Center 7.6.0 RC3

Is it possible to install some of the proprietary packages on our own? GFS2 was one of the things in 7.6 that I was most excited about.
