FreeNAS 0.7 (Khasadar) released

After a long time i'm proud to announce the release of the 0.7 final release. Thanks to all that help to find bugs and improve FreeNAS. Please see the changes below:

Majors changes:
- Add ability to configure the login shell for a user.
- Upgrade Samba to 3.0.37.
- Upgrade transmission to 1.72.
- Local users must join the group 'ftp' to be able to login via FTP if
'Local users only' in 'Services|FTP' is enabled.
- Upgrade lighttpd to 1.4.23.
- Add a user portal. This allows a local user to login and change it's
password. The user must have access permissions to login to the user portal.
This can be configured in the user configuration WebGUI. Please note that
the administrator needs to apply changes done by the local users because
there have to be restarted several services (which is not allowed to be
done by a user).
