First Impressions of FreeNAS 0.8 Developer Preview

August 13th, 2010

Warner Losh from iXsystems has kindly send me a disk image of the first FreeNAS 0.8 developer build. The guys at iXsystems have done a great job so far and the core of FreeNAS has been successfully ported to FreeBSD 8.1.

A basic web GUI is up and running and things are starting to take shape. I am working with Warner to try and get some screen shots for you.

If the current rate of progress continues there should be a more general preview build available in the next couple of weeks with the ability to configure the network, disks, filesystems, NFS and SAMBA from the web GUI.

Warner is hoping to do weekly snapshots and I will try and blog about the updates as then come.

    Can’t wait to see some screen shots. Love my freenas, but been having some issues with the nightlies, hopefully it will resolve with the next stable release.
