The first beta release of NetBox v3.2 is now available! This release debuts a ton of exciting new features, including:

  • Device modules & module types
  • Object and multi-object custom fields
  • Customizable status choices
  • Improved user preferences
  • Inventory item roles & templates
  • Service templates
  • Automatic provisioning of available VLANs

This release also greatly extends NetBox’s plugins framework, introducing formal support for myriad model, view, form, table, and other components. These will greatly simplify the process of plugin development and minimize the duplication of boilerplate code in plugins. You can find a complete accounting of the new plugins framework in the beta documentation.

As with previous beta releases, we’ve spun up a public demo instance at beta-demo.netbox.dev for the community to help evaluate the new features and submit any bug reports or suggestions. Of course, you’re also encouraged to download and deploy the beta release locally, especially if you’d like to experiment with the new plugins framework.

The final release of v3.2.0 is scheduled for early April, so now is the time to try it out and let us know what you think!
