What’s new in version 1.9.0

Updated on May 04 2022

  • It is now possible to authenticate the client with the Multipass service. This write up explains how some of this works. This basically makes it possible to use the multipass client as a non admin user on Linux and macOS and closes the security gap on Windows.
  • Multipass on Apple M1 by default and Intel hosts using the qemu driver now support adding additional networks (via --network on launch). Additionally, suspending instances on the M1 now works (via multipass suspend )!
  • For new Multipass installs on Windows, the Multipass data will now be located in C:\ProgramData\Multipass instead of the cumbersome systemprofile directory.
