The Virtualizor Team has released Virtualizor 2.9.4 (Stable Branch)
This version introduces some great features like VHD file support for Xenserver, Enduser Backups, Enduser ISOs and some bug fixes.
The following are the complete list of changes :

1) [Feature] We have implemented a new wizard for VPS Backups. In the new wizard, you create a Backup Plan which can be set per VPS or in a VPS Plan. Each VPS belonging to a backup plan will be backed up accordingly. The docs are as follows :

2) [Feature] The Admin can also allow endusers to make their own backups OR restore from old backups without any Admin intervention.

3) [Feature] Endusers can now install SSH Keys into their VMs from the Virtualizor Enduser Panel.

5) [Feature] Virtualizor XenServer did not support migration of VPS within a cluster. This is now possible in this version of Virtualizor. VHD format is also supported.

6) [Feature] Added CPU Topology parameters for XenServer. Admins / Cloud Users can specify sockets and cores for their XenServer VMs.

7) [Feature] We have added support for PIGZ Compression. During migration and backups, if compression is enabled GZip is used to compress the files. PIGZ is a faster compression utility and uses threading.

However, this will work only for EXT partition formats. It will not work for Windows or other formats. The correct disk usage will not be visible till the VM flushes / syncs the superblock to the disk.

11) [Feature] It will now be possible to backup the Virtualizor Database to a Remote location over FTP / SSH :

12) [Feature] Cloud User will now be able to create a VPS with CPU Topology.

13) [Feature] Enduser ISO : We have added the feature for enduser(s) to download and use their own ISO. This feature needs to be enabled by the Admin and limits can be set by the Admin :

14) [Feature] Its now possible to create a list of Allowed IPs for accessing the Admin Panel. Any requests from other IPs will be blocked :

15) [Feature] We have added support for Proxmox 5 in this version.

17) [Task] The Add VPS wizard will now throw an <strong>Version Mismatch</strong> error if the Slave node's Virtualizor version is not matching the Master's Virtualizor version.

18) [Task] We have added the Ukrainian language in this version.

19) [Task] create_vm_pre_addvs hook has been added.

26) [Bug-Fix] For a Windows VM, the disk usage was not detected correctly when the VM was started. This is now fixed.

27) [Bug-Fix] If the Mac address was set through the ManageVPS wizard for KVM VPS, the VM failed to start. This is now fixed.

28) [Bug-Fix] The Reset Password email was sent blank from the Enduser Panel due to a language bug. This is fixed.

29) [Bug-Fix] When a XenServer Node restarted, the VMs power state was not preserved. This is fixed.
