FreeNAS 0.69RC2 (Kralizec) released

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please note, due adding many new features which have blown
up the image size of FreeNAS it is not possible to upgrade
to the latest 0.69RC2 from versions < 0.69b4 if you
have choosen the embedded OS/DATA installation mode.
In this case you have to backup your data from the DATA
partition and do a fresh installation.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Majors changes:
- Upgrade to FreeBSD 6.4-RELEASE.
- Add system firewall. Please note this is only for the local system and not
for the network (this will also never be implemented, use pfSense or m0n0wall
instead).
- Upgrade transmission to 1.40.
- Introduce new WebGUI look (fixes some MSIE rendering bugs also).

Minors changes:
- Add UPS service WebGUI option to define shutdown mode.
- Add option 'Use sendfile' to 'Services|CIFS/SMB|Settings'. Some users report
problems with this option (which is enabled by default), so now it is really
easy to disable it.
- Check if configured port is already used (e.g. UPnP, Bittorrent, DAAP, ...).

Bug fixes:
- Fix web server security hole (file .htpasswd was downloadable) (BR 2255936).
- Re-enable fuppes transcoding support (BR 2276571).
- Remove garbage at end of downloaded log files (BR 2309257).

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.
- It is not possible to get seperate CPU stats per processor on SMP machines because
FreeBSD does not support that feature.
- Enable 'polling' on interfaces used by a LAGG interface will make it inoperable.

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