FreeNAS 0.686.4 (unreleased):
-----------------------------

Minors changes:
- Set subnet mask to 24 per default if DHCP is activated, otherwise WebGUI is not accessible in
  most networks when changing from DHCP to static.
- Do not validate sync time values when pressing 'Now' on status report page.
- Add ability to add multiple destination email addresses on status report page (e.g. test@test,com;test2@test.com).
- Display interfaces with status 'associated' in UPnP services WebGUI, too. Thanks to sea_sbs.
- Add ability to configure multiple host names for Dynamic DNS service (FR 1952020).
- Add patch to do a file system check on root if necessary. Thanks to Nelson Silva and Lars Köller.

Bug fixes:
- Display correct share name for mounted ISO's on initial system page (BR 1935353). Thanks to paq237.
- Fix CPU graph script error (BR 1940372).
- Fix initial view of the the bandwidth graph to bytes/s (BR 1948447). Thanks to Robert Eden.
- Stop iscsi-target service on shutdown (BR 1948432). Thanks to Robert Eden.
- Fix bug when using setkey on a encrypted RAID via WebGUI 'Disks: Encryption: Tools'.
- Fix bug in WebGUI 'Disks: Mount Point: Edit' when configuring CD/DVD. Thanks to hvrio for reporting.

Permanent restrictions:
- It is not possible to format a SoftRAID disk with MSDOS FAT16/32.
- It is not possible to encrypt a disk partition, only complete disks are supported.

Known bugs:
- If DHCP for IPv4 is used, the IPv6 statically configured DNS server will be override by the IPv4 DNS server.

NEED TO BE TESTED:
- IPv6: auto mode is not tested
- All services using IPv6 address (NFS, FTP, etc...)
- netatalk VFS samba module (automatically enabled when netatalk started) crash samba when acces to share
- Need to write a online-test procedure

Help needed:
- Need help for adding LDAP authentication feature:
  Major services can be easly authenticated using PAM-LDAP, but for Samba too is harder.

FreeNAS 0.686.3:
----------------

Majors changes:
- Remove consolehm sensor support because it doesn't work/recognize up-to-date hardware.
  Will be replaced with FreeBSD 7.0 sensor framework in FreeNAS 0.7.
- WebGUI uses NiftyCubes for rounded corners with CSS and Javascript.
- Validate minutes/hours/days/months/week days configuration on misc WebGUI pages
  (e.g. scheduled shutdown/reboot, RSYNC local, ...).

Minors changes:
- Add /bin/chflags.
- Fix some WebGUI code bugs.
- Modify install menu.

Bug fixes:

Permanent restrictions:
- It is not possible to format a SoftRAID disk with MSDOS FAT16/32.
- It is not possible to encrypt a disk partition, only complete disks are supported.

  fails to build on FreeBSD, also new version requires external libs for DLNA support which is not ported
  to FreeBSD right at the moment.
  You have to reconfigure the UPnP service to get working properly. XBox 360 is not supported, sorry.
- Increase mfsroot size to 54mb for embedded version. So hopefully the OS has enough memory for logfiles,...
  Especially with Samba tbd files, which increases rapidely with a huge number of users accessing the system.

- Switch back to SCHED_ULE scheduler.

- Upgrade ATAidle to 2.3.
- Set 'kern.hz="500"' in /boot/loader.conf for better system and media streaming performance. Thanks to Eyn Ergy for testing.
  VMWare users which require this setting have to install in 'full' mode and edit loader.conf by hand.
  See http://ivoras.sharanet.org/freebsd/vmware.html or http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/handbook/virtualization-guest.html for some tipps.

  Please check your configuration and reconfigure your FTP service if necessary.
- Do not display warning message "The attribute 'Domain name' contains invalid characters and is no valid domain name." anymore because
  this stops configuring provider FreeDNS.
