We have updated our distribution images and netboot installers with some new releases.
- NixOS 18.09 (netboot installer, HVM only)
- OpenBSD 6.4 (netboot installer, HVM only)
- Ubuntu 18.10 AKA “Cosmic Cuttlefish”
We also had a report that our netboot images for Debian Jessie and Debian Stretch were stale. The kernel available with the netboot image was older than the one used by the installer. These have also been updated to the latest version.
These distribution images and netboot installers are available from the management console. A full and up-to-date list of supported operating systems can always be found at the distributions page of our wiki.
This time, we will not be pushing updates to our legacy servers. If your VPS is on one of those, and you wish to upgrade using one of our new images, please write firstname.lastname@example.org and ask us to move your VPS to our new cluster management system. If you are unsure of whether your VPS is on a legacy server, VPSes on legacy servers do not have a “system details” menu option on the management console.
