Announcing the Multipass 1.6.1 release

Multipass version 1.6.1

Hello everyone! A new Multipass release!

The biggest news here is the addition of the --network launch option, which allows you to connect instances to a network of your choice. Supported on the LXD, Hyper-V and VirtualBox backends.

NB: We burned the 1.6.0 version number, having found a bug late in the release process.

Windows and macOS installers are available here and the Snap in the stable snap channel:

snap refresh multipass --channel stable
# or
snap install multipass


  • Support for bridged networking (#118, #1886, #1912, #1921)
  • Improved LXD support (#1752, #1762, #1834, #1835)
  • Add check for available disk space on launch (#1854) - thanks @katie-knister!
  • Add suggested command when ‘exec’ gets an unrecognized option (#1863) - thanks @dlbeck!
  • Use colurful terminal in multipass shell on Windows (#1687)
  • Fixed YAML colon handling being incompatible with cloud-init’s pyyaml (#1097)

You can find the full list of changes since v1.5.0 in our v1.6.0 milestone and even more detailed in the full commit log.
