OMV6 (Shaitan) RC1 released

Today the first release candidate (6.0-34) of OMV6 (Shaitan) has been released.

The CHANGELOG will list all improvements in this version beside the following:

  • Upgrade to Debian 11 (Bullseye)
  • New user interface

You can download the ISO image for AMD64 based systems here. Additionally to the ISO installation you can install OMV on a Debian 11 based system according to the guide posted in the forum.

OMV5 systems with version 5.6.18 or later can be upgraded via the command line tool omv-release-upgrade. Please note that this migration path has not yet been tested with many systems. The project is looking for volunteers to support us and report errors in the bug tracker.

Before you update your system, please check whether all your installed plugins have already been adapted for OMV6. All plugins in the openmediavault repository have been adapted; for the plugins please check this forum post.

Please consider whether you want to install this version on a productive system. I did my best to make this version as stable as possible, but there are certainly special cases that cause problems.

If you find any bugs, please report them here. Issues related to plugins should be reported here.
