FreeNAS 0.69b4 is out the door

October 1st, 2008 Comments off

FreeNAS 0.69b4 has been released. This version upgrades FreeBSD (the underlying OS) to 6.4.

IMPORTANT:
Please note, because of the many new features that have been added to FreeNAS, the size of the image file has increased and it is not possible to upgrade to the latest 0.69b4 from previous installations if you have chosen the embedded OS/DATA installation mode. In this case you have to backup your data from the DATA partition and do a fresh installation.

It isn't yet clear if this also includes upgrades from 0.69b3
