XCP-ng 8.3 public alpha 🚀
@CptHyper I'm not sure to understand what are you talking about. Can you be more specific?
@olivierlambert sure, i mean the possibility to exclude disks from Snapshots. You said its only possible if the snapshot is triggered by an Backup job, but i think this would be useful as well for manual snapshots or ones triggered by the API. A separate (additional) naming [NOSNAP] would make sure people have to opt in.
We just released XCP-ng 8.3 beta 1 !
I opened a new thread for us to discuss it and for you to provide feedback: https://xcp-ng.org/forum/topic/7464/xcp-ng-8-3-beta
Thanks for all the feedback already provided here, and see you on this new thread!
In order not to miss anything (and, let's be honest, for me to be sure that messages on the new thread reach you all), the best course of action is: open the new thread right now and use the "watch" button.
And let's answer this common and legitimate question: how to upgrade from alpha to beta ? Well, there's nothing to do, just update as usual. In fact, you might already be in beta state. However, as indicated in the blog post, we need a lot of testing of the installer, so it's also an option to start from the installation ISO again.
