FreeNAS 8.3.0 is Released!


October 26, 2012

The FreeNAS development team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of FreeNAS 8.3.0-RELEASE.

Images and plugins can be downloaded from the following site:

FreeNAS 8.3.0 is based on FreeBSD 8.3 with version 28 of the ZFS filesystem. This is a major milestone in FreeNAS development, bringing in the plugin system with ZFS version 28. Development of the FreeNAS 8.2 branch has come to a halt, as both ZFS version 15 as well as FreeBSD 8.2 are no longer supported.

There have been no major changes between 8.3.0-RC1 and RELEASE, mostly bugfixes and minor usability improvements to the GUI. See the release notes for a complete list:
