We’re constantly working to provide you with new features, tools, and plugins, and improve your overall Orka experience. For the latest and greatest, be sure to update your CLI to 1.0.8 after your environment has been updated. Here’s an overview of what changes with version 1.0.8.

Improved functionality

  • Improved networking within Orka. You should experience performance improvements in deployments, uploads and downloads, and builds.
  • Improved CPU provisioning to allow for slight overprovisioning. The last VM deployed to a node can now use less resources than specified in the configuration (for example, you can deploy a VM with 6 cores on a node that has only 5 cores free). You should not experience any performance degradation in such a VM unless the remaining VMs on the node are running at 100%.
  • Improved vCPU pinning to limit the occurrence of VMs in a pending state.
  • Improved auto-login in the Orka CLI when the token is already cached locally.
  • Improved confirmation prompts in the Orka CLI. Yes/No Prompts are now case insensitive.
  • Improved VM listing and handling of VMs in an errored state. Orka now lists VMs that are in an errored state. You can remove them with a delete or a purge operation.
  • Improved VM scaling. The command no longer times out.
  • Improved orka user create in the Orka CLI. You can now opt in to log in with the newly created user.
  • Improved kube account management in the Orka CLI. You can now use flags and run the commands in direct mode. Run orka kube --help for more information.
  • Continued flag improvements for VM operations in the CLI. All VM-related commands now feature more intuitive flags and shorthand.


Renamed VM command options

  • orka vm create, orka vm create-config, and orka vm deploy: The --vnc-console flag is renamed to --vnc. The --no-vnc-console flag is dropped.
  • orka vm create-config: The -a flag is renamed to -d.
  • orka vm create: The --iso-image flag is renamed to --iso.
  • orka vm migrate and orka vm clone: The -t flag is renamed to --to-node.

Run orka vm --help for more new and updated flags.

Bug fixes

  • Sometimes, after scaling down with orka vm scale or PATCH /vm/scale, Kubernetes was erroneously holding onto services and consuming unnecessary resources in the process.
  • (Partial fix, complete fix coming in a future release) Sometimes, the Orka CLI prints duplicate output for orka <COMMAND> --help and orka <COMMAND> <VERB> --help.
