The Wait is Over, First RC for FreeNAS 0.7 is Available

June 20th, 2009

Volker Theile and the FreeNAS team have proudly to announced the first release candidate of FreeNAS 0.7.

It can be downloaded from http://www.freenas.org/index.php?option=com_versions&Itemid=51

Version 0.7 is a major upgrade to FreeNAS with the most significant changes being the move to FreeBSD 7.2 and the inclusion of ZFS. Also the minimum specification has changed, if you want to use ZFS you will need 512MB of memory.

Majors changes:

  • Upgrade to FreeBSD 7.2.
  • Include ZFS support.
  • Upgrade iSCSI initiator to 2.1.1.
  • Replace iSCSI target by istgt. Please note, if you have used devices with the previous iSCSI target software you have to recreate your target.
  • Upgrade transmission to 1.61. Add ‘Watch directory’ and ‘Extra options’ fields to ‘Services|BitTorrent’ WebGUI.

Known bugs:

  • Downgrading to 0.69 via WebGUI fails because of broken pipe error.
  • FreeBSD’s ext2fs module, as of release 7.1, cannot mount ext2 file systems
    with 256-byte large inodes, only 128 byte sized. Unfortunately, 256 byte is
    the default size with many recent Linux distributions.
