FreeNAS 0.8 Roadmap

February 24th, 2010

Some more details are starting to emerge about what will appear in FreeNAS 0.8:

Planned major features:

  • Development on FreeBSD RELENG_8. Release, depending on timeframe may be based on a RELENG_8 snapshot or 8.1-RELEASE
  • Migrate off m0n0wall
  • Migrate GUI to django
  • Add support for ada and ahci SATA drivers
  • Add optional SoftUpdates + Journaling support to UFS2 filesystems
  • Migration path/tool for previous releases and configurations
  • Preservation of all existing features of the current FreeNAS release
  • Refactor FreeNAS build system to allow building FreeNAS without affecting the host environment
  • Non-Blocking Features

Possible other features

  • FreeNAS package support. Binary one click installs that modify the GUI dynamically.

I am sure this list will evolve and you can keep an eye on the current developments here: http://freenas.org/roadmap

    DJango!? … why Django? … Isn’t it more heavy?
    I mean I would like to listen some reason behind this decision.

    Massimo: Because Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.

    Am I the only f*@$&ing one who misses easy and reliable RAID Level Migration and Online Capacity Expansion in FreeNAS ?!? Every NAS box from 200$ upward has these features, and in my world they are essential.

    I know you’re supposed to be able to do that with some mile long command line, which will mess up everything if you get one character wrong, but wasn’t FreeNAS supposed to be for non-Linux-nerds ?!?

    I’d even PAY for FreeNAS if it had these features.

    What’s with that?
