What’s New

Added a couple top requested features in Virtual Machines and continued with the performance enhancements that lead to faster load times and page rendering.

Virtual Machines

Based on high customer request, we now support viewing and changing VM settings while a VM is running, similar to how you can in Hyper-V Manager. On Generation 2 VMs, you can change general settings, memory setting, checkpoint setting and add disks and network adapters.

You can also enable nested virtualization when creating a VM, or from the processor settings of an existing (stopped) VM. This is functionality that was previously only accessible from the command line.

Events

Administrative events are now displayed.

Performance improvements

The new data grid control has been added to all tools except the HCI solution and Storage Replica.

We have started rolling out a new tree control with the same scale and performance improvements as the new data grid. The new tree control is implemented in the Files and Registry tools.
