1. What's New?

  • Visual Console

    Having visual feedback of your antlet is now easier than ever! This feature was requested a lot among our users, and we're happy to announce it is finally here. We introduced and embedded VNC client that runs in any modern browser. Just click the antlet's launch icon and boom! Your antlet appears.

  • antletsAnywhere℠

    In previous versions of antlets you could only create antlets inside the "antlets" ZPool. While we still recommend you use this as your default one, as it will have better performance, we understand that there are use cases where you would like to create an antlet in a different ZPool. Now you can! Just select the ZPool of your choice in the antlet creation form, and you're done!

  • General improvements

    We added better feedback when you start/stop/reboot an antlet. If something goes wrong now, you'll see the error message directly in antman. We also added some bug fixes and usability improvements.
