The FreeNAS project, a network attached storage solution based on FreeBSD, has launched FreeNAS 9.3. The new version introduces some significant changes, including the ability to roll back software updates and a new, streamlined interface.

This FreeNAS update is a significant evolutionary step from previous FreeNAS releases, featuring a simplified and reorganized Web User Interface, support for Microsoft ODX and Windows 2012 clustering, better VMWare integration, including VAAI support, a new and more secure update system with roll-back functionality, and hundreds of other technology enhancements.

The release notes for FreeNAS 9.3 contain more details and instructions for upgrading from previous releases.

Probably. On the other hand, most intel/amd CPUs have supported amd64 for a good while now; much like IE6 there comes a point where it's probably not worth supporting.

Well I really wasn't going for new installs here. I know a lot of people running 9.2 on small x86 platforms (32bit) won't have an upgrade path. For complex configurations, that sucks.

But yeah, it won't be a big deal to those who move forward with new installs.
