Hi all,

We are proud to announce the release of the first beta of our Proxmox VE 
4.x family - based on the great Debian Jessie.

Please help us reaching the final release date by testing this beta and 
by providing feedback.

A big Thank-you to our active community for all feedback, testing, bug 
reporting and patch submissions.

So what's new in Proxmox VE 4.0 beta1?

New Proxmox VE HA Manager for High Availability Clusters

The brand new HA manager dramatically simplifies HA setups – it works 
with a few clicks on the GUI, test it! And it elminates the need of 
external fencing devices, watchdog fencing is automatically configured.

Linux Containers (lxc)

The new container solution for Proxmox VE will be fully integrated into 
our frameworks, e.g. this includes also our storage plugins. And it 
works with all modern and latest Linux kernels.

DRBD9

We already included the brand new DRBD9 stable release, so its ready for 
testing!
