Unraid 6.11.1 Now Available

6 11 1

What's New in Unraid OS 6.11.1?

The 6.11.1 release includes improvements to VM Manager, bug fixes, an update of qemu, libvert, docker, and more!


Updated both qemu and libvirt to the latest versions:

  • Added ppc, riscv32/riscv64, and aarch64 support.

Updated docker to v20.10.18 and improved networking:

  • When DHCP is used, wait for IPv4 assignment before proceeding on system startup, this avoids a possible race condition at boot time when host access to custom networks is enabled.
  • Allow user-defined networks to be reconnected at docker service start. Now all defined networks will be automatically reconnected.

VM Manager improvements:

  • Implemented option to use Virtiofs for mapping of Unraid host shares into a VM.
  • Added Spice HTML client for Virtual Machines (experimental).

Notable Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where opening certain pages, eg, Dashboard, needlessly causes writes to the USB Flash boot device.
  • Fixed the issue where docker containers can reach the Internet when the WireGuard tunnel is not autostarted at system boot up. Users are advised to regenerate the WG configs. This can be done by clicking in a field to change a value and then changing it back in order to get the Apply button to light up. Then click Apply.
  • Fixed an issue where empty popup windows get displayed with certain browsers and devices.
  • Restored "NTLMv1 authentication" for incoming SMB connections.
