DragonFly 3.6.1 released
More info here.
FreeNAS 126.96.36.199-RC is now available
FreeNAS 188.8.131.52-RELEASE is now available
From a high level, these are the most significant changes:
- Samba (SMB/CIFS support) upgraded to version 4.1.5
- Linux Jails now work with UFS
- NFS lockd now starts properly at boot time
- Serial console misconfiguration is now harder to do.
- Logging to .system dataset is now optional. If you have an old syslog dataset (which is how this was formerly done), you are strongly encouraged to transition to the new .system/syslog dataset by enabling that option in System->Settings->Advanced and simply deleting your old syslog dataset.
