Description Michal Skrivanek 2018-12-04 12:46:39 UTC
Cirrus is deprecated since 4.0 and VGA is the new default. In 4.3 we're dropping 3.6 compatibility and so we can remove Cirrus completely

"almost completely", as it was left as allowed in 4.0-4.2. So just changing the defaults

Please tech review the updated Doc Text.

> Cirrus graphics option visible in Instance Type

note it doesn't let you create VMs with Cirrus anyway, so it's just a cosmetic issue. Anyway, 2 more patches to get in...

Comment 7 Michal Skrivanek 2019-02-22 11:33:07 UTC
oh, and Instance Types are not version specific, so technically it should be still there
