Anka Virtualization CLI 2.5.5 (2.5.5.142) - April 11th, 2022

Important considerations for this release
  • Upgrading Addons from the previous minor version of anka is recommended but not required.

For more details, take a look at our [pre-upgrade considerations](/anka/intel/upgrading/#pre-upgrade-considerations).
  • Bug Fix: anka cp and anka run hang when executing + ankactl: communication error: Operation timed out errors after resuming VMs (addons upgrade required).
  • Bug Fix: When two pulls are happening on the same machine for the same template and tag, it can sometimes cause a failure with anka: no such version.
  • Bug Fix: Rarely anka registry pull would become stuck.
  • Bug Fix: When the machine’s disk was full, anka registry pull would report 100%/successfully pulled.
  • Bug Fix: The Anka uninstaller was deleting the controller package installed on the same machine.
  • Bug Fix: anka registry pull speed limitations fixed/removed.
  • Bug Fix: anka registry pull can fail with could not create disk image, status 74. and then subsequent pulls immediately show 100%. This results in a broken VM.
  • Bug Fix: Network/IP detection can very rarely choose the wrong IP on 11.6.4 VMs.
  • Bug Fix: block_nocache was not working properly.
  • Improvement: Network isolation now support bridged networking VMs (anka modify VMNAME set network-card --no-local).
  • Improvement: Monterey VM performance.
  • New Feature: anka show now displays cpu usage from inside of the VM

Previous Versions

2.5.4 (2.5.4.138) - Dec 27th, 2021

Important considerations for this release
  • Upgrading Addons from the previous minor version of anka is recommended but not required.

  • Suspended VMs created in previous minor versions of anka are not compatible and will need to be force stopped (anka stop --force), started, and then re-suspended post-upgrade.


For more details, take a look at our [pre-upgrade considerations](/anka/intel/upgrading/#pre-upgrade-considerations).
  • Bug Fix: Automatic creation of anka image storage directories was not happening for config defaults and caused the agent to be unable to create VMs.

2.5.4 (2.5.4.136) - Dec 10th, 2021


Important considerations for this release
  • Upgrading Addons from the previous minor version of anka is recommended but not required.

  • Suspended VMs created in previous minor versions of anka are not compatible and will need to be force stopped (anka stop --force), started, and then re-suspended post-upgrade.

  • Avoid upgrading to this version on nodes with running VMs.


For more details, take a look at our [pre-upgrade considerations](/anka/intel/upgrading/#pre-upgrade-considerations).
  • Bug Fix: anka list was not sorted by name.
  • Bug Fix: Race condition throws “not found” when anka clone and anka delete happen at the same time.
  • Bug Fix: VMs created with the name “11.6” throw a failure.
  • Bug Fix: Anka registry list command fails with key values mismatch when using self signed certs.
  • Bug Fix: Machine readable stop_date is in a bad format for parsing (causing day out of range)
  • Bug Fix: Machine readable status differ between list and show commands.
  • Bug Fix: anka create suddenly throwing hdiutil: attach failed - Resource busy error.
  • Bug Fix: anka license show -k {license} doesn’t display proper host based license information.
  • Bug Fix: Unable to use change_res binary on Big Sur, Monterey, and PG enabled VM templates.
  • Bug Fix: On machine boot, anka_agent is running and executing anka list which triggers creation of *_lib directories. This was causing network mounts (which happen after the agent runs) to try using the same location, failing to because they already exist, and instead mounting with a different name. This caused anka list to be empty after a reboot. We removed the creation on anka list which will give enough time for network mounts to claim the path.
  • Bug Fix: The anka uninstaller script was removing a locally installed controller package.
  • Improvement: Monterey VM creation will automatically set ablk as the disk controller (virtio-blk not supported currently).
  • Improvement: Support for 32 core machines.
  • Improvement: We now check the registry status/availability before creating a local tag. This should prevent situations where a local tag was created prematurely and then blocked subsequent commands (requiring either a manual deletion of the local tag, or a force push).
  • New Feature: You can now find the last used date/time of a VM/Template using the access_date key/value.
  • This release includes support for 12.1 beta.

2.5.3 (2.5.3.135) - Sep 23rd, 2021

Suspended VMs in 2.4.X are not compatible and will need to be force stopped (anka stop –force), started, and then re-suspended post-upgrade.
Upgrading Addons from the previous version of anka is recommended.
Avoid upgrading the anka package to 2.5.X on nodes with VMs running.
  • Bug Fix: Apple’s automatic software update/download is enabled for newly created VMs. This was causing a problem where the new macOS version installer .app was being downloaded each time a VM was started.
  • Bug Fix: VMs randomly crashing with failed to get pid: Socket is not connected
  • Bug Fix: anka config default_passwd returning 245 exit code
  • Bug Fix: VM suspension logic was producing stopping VMs
  • Bug Fix: Date strings in anka list have overflow in minutes and seconds fields

Known issues we’re working on fixes for:

Creating a VM Template with the name of 11.6 seems to throw not found errors when trying to push, clone, etc.


2.5.2 (2.5.2.133) - Sep 13th, 2021

  • Improvement: anka show is now possible for specific local tags | Documentation
  • Improvement: anka delete {template}:{tag} has been replaced with anka delete {template} --tag {tag} | [Documentation]({{ relref “intel/Whats New/_index.md#previous-tag-deletion-method-has-been-replaced” }})
  • Improvement: You can now suspend VMs that have PG display enabled
  • Improvement: anka create can now be done in multiple stages so MDM can target the VM to apply profiles on creation | Documentation

  • Fuse will no longer be installed within newly created VMs

Known Issues we’re working on fixes for:

  • Several command flags are not functioning properly in this version. Examples: anka run --env/--env-file, anka start --usb/-d, and anka list -f
  • sudo anka view or anka view as root seems to have stopped working.
  • anka list -f ram shows human readable values instead of bytes
  • anka start -u does not work on Mojave hosts

2.4.1 (2.4.1.130) - Apr 19th, 2021

  • New feature: anka config now contains delete_logs which, if set to False, will keep /Library/Logs/Anka/{UUID}.log files around even after deletion of the VM

2.4.0 (2.4.0.129) - Mar 31st, 2021

Upgrading Addons from the previous version is necessary

  • New Feature: (improved security) VM network isolation when using shared type network-card. This also means that any access to the host also blocked (192.168.64.1).
  • New Feature: Pushing and pulling from the registry is now chunked.
  • Improvement: Suspended VMs that fail to start for a temporary issue will not become corrupted anymore. This allows a second start to happen without having to re-pull the suspended VM again from the registry.
  • Improvement: Anka clone now preserves the source VM creation date.
  • Bug Fix: Anka run suddenly throws -anka: communication timeout
  • Bug Fix: When /var/tmp/ankafs.0 is created as one user, and another user in the VM tries to use it, it fails with Permission Denied
  • Bug Fix: ENVs passing into the VM using anka run --env throw -anka: communication timeout
