  • 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.

    It is listed under the nightly builds, so to me it does not appear to be a stable release.
