This point release for 9.2.1 fixes performance issues with ZFS replication, SMB spins / hangs under certain circumstances, and a variety of smaller issues.

All bugs fixed in can be found here.

This is a very small point release – very few changes have been made as we are endeavoring to continue refining 9.2.1.x until no significant bugs are left and we can focus exclusively on 9.2.2, which will have far more substantial changes (see this link for some notion of what is planned for 9.2.2).

We’re releasing a BETA first to make sure there are no lingering issues we’ve missed, otherwise it will be substantially the same as (which we’ll release in another 14 days or so).

Thank you, as always, for your testing!
