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
- 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.
