Jordan Hubbard has announced the availability of FreeNAS 9.2.1-RC. It is expected that this will be the only Release Candidate to be made available, unless show stopper are found.
The most interesting changes from the BETA releases are an upgraded version of Samba (to version 4.1.4), a new driver for the LSI 12G SAS card, a fixed Netatalk bug, mDNSresponder replacing Avahi and some changes to the graphs on the reports screen.
The FreeNAS development team is proud to announce the first Release Candidate image of FreeNAS 9.2.1! Barring the finding of any significant problems, this is essentially 9.2.1 RELEASE. We will, of course, fix any “release blocker” problems that people find over the next 10 days (we would like to release 9.2.1 on February 7th, all else permitting) so please test this as heavily as you can. We are also running it in production on our own servers, so we take “release candidate” pretty seriously!
I guess FreeNAS 9.2.1-RELEASE won’t be far off now.
