For those of you on Google+, there is now a FreeNAS page.
The first release candidate for FreeNAS 8.03 is now available for testing. Before installing or upgrading to RC1, take the time to read the cautionary notes in the announcement. Please report any bugs to the support website or testing mailing list.
This release includes the following enhancements and bug fixes. See the announcement for the complete list.
- reduced footprint
- added tunable / sysctl support so settings that affect kernel behavior persist across upgrades
- bump samba from 3.5.11 to 3.6.1
- bump netatalk to 2.2.1
- NFSv4 ACL support
- fix email regressions so that non-SMTP authentication based emails work again
There will be a FreeBSD booth during LISA in Boston, next Wednesday and Thursday (December 7â€“8). Weâ€™ll be giving out FreeNAS 8.0.2 DVDs, cool swag, and answering BSD and FreeNAS related questions. Entrance to the exhibition area is free, but you do need to register first. If youâ€™re in Boston, stop by booth #408 and sayÂ hi!
iXsystems will also have a booth at #305 if you’d like to check out some TrueNAS hardware and meet some of the FreeNAS developers.
