Please see the release notes for more details.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed hang and failure in BTRFS local refreshes for VMs and some containers (depending on the image type being used).
  • Fixed regression in Ceph RBD snapshot migrations due to locking change.
  • Fixed resize for ZFS pools with custom zfs.pool_name.
  • Fixed auth bug to ensure projects cannot be edited or deleted by restricted clients.
  • Fixed crash when evacuating cluster member that has instances with OVN NICs.
  • Fixed issue with lxc permission list incorrectly using the current project set by the client rather than the filter parameter specified on the command line.
  • Fixed issue with lxc permission list not correctly parsing the remote specified.
  • Fixed intermittent minio start up error due to conflicting console address.
  • Pre-checks permissions when performing bulk state update so that partial updates don’t occur.
  • Fixed issue with storage volume volatile.uuid patch not applying for shared-storage volumes when using a cluster.
  • Fixed LXD snap race setting up /var/snap/lxd/shmounts that sometimes prevented snap removal on Ubuntu 24.04.
