Yesterday i’ve upgraded the NTFS support, now we are using fusefs-ntfs v1.417 and fusefs-libs v2.6.3. There is only one problem in the WebGUI that we will hopefully fix soon.
Because some users want to test the newest features added to FreeNAS, but can’t create their own build, i’ve added a ‘nightly build‘ archive to sourceforge. I will upload my latest builds from time to time, so if you are interested please have a look into the archive from time to time.
Yesterday i’ve added a nice bootsplash to make the booting process a little bit nicer
I’ve choosen a low resolution (640×480) to make sure it will be displayed on nearly every display and to keep the mem cosumption as low as possible.
Also Olivier and i thinking about how to integrate plugins and additional kernel modules into FreeNAS. One option is to provide a harddrive installation that enables the user to add plugins and additional drivers (kernel modules).
I’ve added the plugins infrastructure (on client and build scripts) already and there is also the first plugin available: lcdproc (without GUI, will be added soon). A WebGUI to administrate plugins will be available soon, too.
