Podman v1.7.0 has been released, including many new features and numerous bugfixes. It features improvements to networking,
podman play kube, and systemd unit file integration. We’ve also added the
podman system reset command, to remove all existing containers, pods, images, and volumes and reset the system to its initial state. Stability has not been neglected, and this release features almost 60 bugfixes, including major fixes for
podman exec, and volumes.
This new release features improved support for host networking via the CNI
macvlan plugin which allows containers to connect directly to networks the host is connected to. The
podman network create command can now create
macvlan configs via the
--macvlan flag. Containers can also set static MAC addresses. The
podman play kube command has also been updated to respect security settings, including user/group, SELinux configuration, and Seccomp profiles. Podman now creates a cgroup namespace by default on systems using cgroups v2, improving container isolation. We’ve made major improvements for running Podman in a systemd service. These changes (and how to use them) are detailed elsewhere in a blog.
