The development team is pleased to announce the availability of FreeNAS 8.2.0-RC1. Be sure to read the Release Notes in the download directory for your architecture, especially if you are upgrading from a previous version.
Barring any major bugs in this release candidate, RELEASE should be just around the corner. If you find any bugs, be sure to report them so that they can be fixed in time for RELEASE. 8.3 is expected to be released shortly after 8.2-RELEASE, bringing along all of the ZFS v28 goodness. So it looks like July will be a busy month for FreeNAS users.
The docs are mostly up-to-date with RC1 and will improve next week, especially the section on Plugins. We’re aiming to publish the 8.2 Users Guide a day or so after 8.2 is released.
