A new major release of the LXD Dashboard has just been released. There are a lot of changes to this release adding many more options to help manage LXD servers.
In this release the management of both container and virtual machines instances has been separated into two different pages. This has many added benefits to managing instances as containers and virtual machines use several different configuration properties. Also, users of legacy LXD versions (3.0.3) can now use the LXD Dashboard to manage their containers.
A new image catalog has been added to make it quick and easy to download LXD images. Users can still use the form to download images not listed in the catalog. This makes it simple to download either containers or virtual machines of your favorite Linux distributions.
Remote LXD hosts now have an option for an external IP address and port. This will provide the web socket connection a different address than what the LXD Dashboard uses to communicate to the server. If no external address and port are provided the web socket connection uses the default address and port.
Users can now manage the client.crt certificate that LXD uses to connect to LXD servers. This can be found in the settings page. If a user deletes the existing certificate, a new one will automatically be populated. This allows users to remove expired certificates as well as now changing the certificate used if the LXD Dashboard is cloned.
Both containers and virtual machines now display the CPU usage when viewing the specific instance.
Changes to the theme have added a fresh look with slightly darker pages.
