FreeNAS has replaced 

Due to #4836, we have decided to release as a replacement for It is in all other respects identical to, simply with that ZFS snapshot UI bug fixed. We apologize for the inconvenience to those who have already upgraded to, but decided it was better to fix the #1 issue people were encountering with rather than try for some kind of work-around.
