Multipass version 1.9.0
A new Multipass release!
There are some significant additions to this release:
- It is now possible to authenticate the client with the Multipass service. This write up explains how some of this works. This basically makes it possible to use the
multipassclient as a non admin user on Linux and macOS and closes a major security gap on Windows.
- Multipass on Apple M1 by default and Intel hosts using the
qemudriver now support adding additional networks (via
launch). Additionally, suspending instances on the M1 now works (via
multipass suspend <name>)!
- For new Multipass installs on Windows, the Multipass data will now be located in
C:\ProgramData\Multipassinstead of the cumbersome
snap refresh multipass --stable # or snap install multipass
- Renaming of Multipass Workflows to Multipass Blueprints to better reflect what they are.
- Much work was done on reimplementing the plumbing on how settings are handled in Multipass (#2352)
- Ubuntu 22.04 will be supported on all platforms when it is released.
Notable bug fixes:
- Launch failed: Operation canceled after interrupting image download (#2288)
- Symlinks broken over mounts (#2407)
- [snap] auto-refresh wreaking havoc if kill time out hits (#2316)
