To upgrade:

If you are running any 6.4 or later release, click 'Check for Updates' on the Tools/Update OS page.

If you are running a pre-6.4 release, click 'Check for Updates' on the Plugins page.

If the above doesn't work, navigate to Plugins/Install Plugin, select/copy/paste this plugin URL and click Install:

https://s3.amazonaws.com/dnld.lime-technology.com/stable/unRAIDServer.plg

Refer also to @ljm42 excellent 6.4 Update Notes which are helpful especially if you are upgrading from a pre-6.4 release.

 

BIOS: Especially if using Virtual Machines, we highly recommend keeping your motherboard bios up-to-date.

 

Bugs: If you discover a bug or other issue new to this release, please open a Stable Releases Bug Report.

 

This will likely be the last of the Unraid 6.6 series since the linux kernel, 4.18.20 was recently marked EOL (no more updates).  We had a devil of a time deciding whether to simply update to the 4.19 kernel now, but we're about to start Unraid 6.7 public -rc, which uses 4.19 kernel.  If 6.7 stretches out too far we may need to produce a 6.6.7 for security updates of if something apocalyptic comes up.

Since you... "had a devil of a time deciding whether to simply update to the 4.19 kernel now..." 6.6.6 was the version number that came to mind?   🤣😎

 

As an FYI, I was able to upgrade both of my servers without the need for any holy water, crosses, chanting or other types of rituals.

It could have been a real "Beast" doing this 6.6.6 upgrade, but "Mark" my words...it went very well so far...  😈

Best to wait out 4.20 since a bunch of performance regression patches were landing last week.

 

Also upgraded without issue.

 

Will monitor the threadripper lockups.

 

Since AMD's new microcode hasn't landed in firmware git yet.

Wrong color for Cache utilization of 6% on dashboard. It's shown in red.

 

Update went smooth.

 

***Edit***

75% Utilization of a disk is orange.

64% Utilization of a disk is red

6% Utilization of a disk is red

Probably these will get merged into 4.19 since 4.19 is a LTS (long-term support) kernel.

I have pinned the Update Notes thread since it had long ago scrolled off the first page. Still seeing a number of people coming from some version older than 6.4 to the latest and greatest without bothering to read the release thread.

I'm not seeing this at all. What theme are you using?

webgui: Added customizable header background color

 

Hey

 

I don't see that option anywhere under Settings (or under display settings). Could anyone point me to it?

Settings/Display Settings/Header custom text color

Oh. I have seen that option but I was under the assumption that you can actually change the background and not just text.

Thanks anyway

I am sorry I am going to have to skip this update. I just can't... Any ETA on 6.6.7?

You can change the header background color.  It's right under the text color option.

It's a little funky - it only shows up after you have specified a header text color.

 

I would say this is a bug.

Yeah just wanted to type that I can't see the option. I guess it's a little buggy. It works now that I have set the text color as ffffff and aplied the settings.

Well, that explains why I can see the option and others can't; I have a custom text color defined.

Eh, it was actually designed to work this way.

The reasoning was to allow background color changes only when a foreground color is defined, but if this is confusing it can be changed to a unconditional setting.

It would probably be better if both options were shown. It's a little confusing now (it's simple once you know how to set it but it took me 15 minutes of searching and one forum post to find this awesome function).

It probably is confusing simply because no one will even know the option exists unless they change foreground (text) color.  Someone may wish to change the background color while leaving the text color unchanged.  In that case, they would first have to determine and enter the color code for the text (even if there is no change) before entering desired background color.

Yeah, maybe I was overthinking this when making this function.

 

I reasoned that people would change the header background to the same color as the rest of the page, which also happens to be the color of the text in the header, hence text color needs to change as well.

 

I'll make it more straightforward for the future.

Probably because that is what everyone requesting this feature stated they wanted to do; change background color to black on the black theme and white on the white theme.  In this case, your reasoning is perfectly sound.

 

However, since the option exists to change it to any color, I have been experimenting with several intermediate colors and have found that it makes for a nice visual separation between the banner/header text and the rest of the page if it is a color other than that of the rest of the page.

 

An example:

Did you set an individual threshold for the cache device?

No, I didn't change anything. "Used / free columns" is "Bar column". Seems that the color depends on drive size and not on Utilization.
