Hello FreeNAS Users,
This month, we’re throwing the covers off some big projects—check out the bigger, badder FreeNAS Mini arriving in April, test out the just-released FreeNAS 9.10 nightly builds, and the FreeNAS logo contest winner is announced. We’re also excited to share more user-created content with everyone. There are some great builds in this issue and one user even created a FreeNAS app for Android. Keep them coming!

Cheers,
The FreeNAS Team
