September 15th, 2011 Comments off

The second release candiate for FreeNAS 8.0.1 has been released that includes an updated version of Django which addresses several security vulnerabilities recently found.

Highlights include:

  • iSCSI target works with VMWare ESXi 5.0
  • New email backend that provides interop with a range of mail servers (including gmail)
  • Improvements in selecting iSCSI file extents
  • Update to django 1.3.1 to address security issues in django
  • Fix a bug that was preventing ldap over tls from working.
  • Some machines panic with the usb 3.0 driver, move this from the kernel to a
  • module so it can be disabled.
  • Support mixed tagged and untagged vlan traffic on a physical interface.
  • Added a “save debug” button which will save a tech dump of the freenas box.
  • If the webgui is bound to an address the system no longer has listen on 0.0.0.0
