This is the first and only release candidate planned for the final version of FreeNAS 8.3.1-RELEASE.

FreeNAS 8.3.1 is based on FreeBSD 8.3 with version 28 of the ZFS filesystem, and features volume based encryption for ZFS volumes.

There have been no major changes between 8.3.1-BETA3 and RC1, mostly bugfixes and minor usability improvements to the GUI. See the release notes for a complete list.
