We're very excited to announce the major release 8.0 of Proxmox Virtual Environment! It's based on the great Debian 12 "Bookworm" but using a newer Linux kernel 6.2, QEMU 8.0.2, LXC 5.0.2, and OpenZFS 2.1.12. Here is a selection of the highlights of the Proxmox VE 8.0 final version Debian 12, but using a newer Linux kernel 6.2, QEMU 8.0.2, LXC 5.0.2, ZFS 2.1.12. Ceph Server: Ceph Quincy 17.2 is the default and comes with continued support. There is now an enterprise repository for Ceph which can be accessed via any Proxmox VE subscription, providing the best stability for production systems. Additional text-based user interface (TUI) for the installer ISO. Integrate host network bridge and VNet access when configuring virtual guests into the ACL system of Proxmox VE. Add access realm sync jobs to conveniently synchronize users and groups from an LDAP/AD server automatically at regular intervals. New default CPU type for VMs: x86-64-v2-AES Resource mappings: between PCI(e) or USB devices, and nodes in a Proxmox VE cluster. Countless GUI and API improvements.
