FreeNAS 8.0 hits the street

Bitten by the enterprise bug: home user features missing

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

The FreeNAS project has released version 8.0 of its popular FreeBSD-based network storage server, and in doing so has managed to alienate some of its user base.

The projects directors have decided to focus on the enterprise user as their first priority, and have released FreeNAS 8.0 without the home user functionality present in previous versions.

Gone are iTunes support, DAAP (the Digital Audio Access Protocol), BitTorrent, and UPnP. The release announcement says these features are likely to make it back as third-party plugins.

The new version includes ZFS support (integrating ActiveDirectory and LDAP authorization) and a django-based UI. ®
