    I'm pleased to announce that FreeNAS-9.1.0 Release Candidate 1 is available for download from http://sourceforge.net/projects/freenas/files/FreeNAS-9.1.0/

    Release Notes for FreeNAS 9.1.0-RC1

    This is the first release candidate for FreeNAS 9.1.0. We have passed a great alpha and
    rolling beta cycle with many bug fixes and regressions fixed. At this point, only bug fixes and
    regressions will be addressed.

    *** IMPORTANT ***

    The image size increased in FreeNAS 9.1.0-ALPHA. The new size requires a 4 GB storage device.
    The GUI upgrade can be used to upgrade a system from BETA3 or BETA4, but upgrades
    from earlier releases can only be done from the CD. The other option is to save
    the config, reinstall the new version, then restore the config.

    Major changes:

    1) Version 9.1-STABLE of FreeBSD with performance improvements, bug
    fixes, and updated software packages.

    2) Many improvements to the ZFS filesystem, including feature flags,
    TRIM support, enhanced drive removal notification, LZ4 compression,
    improved ARC memory reclamation and reliability improvements.

    3) Improved Plugin Jail subsystem which supports multiple jails and
    an enhanced UI including enhancements from PC-BSD Warden.

    4) Improved Volume manager including auto optimization of volumes
    for performance.

    5) Improvements to the encryption subsystem.

    6) Documentation enhancements.

    7) Increased base image size to 3.7GB.

    8) GUI UPGRADES FROM FREENAS 8.X ARE NOT SUPPORTED (due to image size #7)

    9) **IMPORTANT** Backward compatibility of FreeNAS 9.1 ZFS pools
    with older versions of ZFS is not to be expected. Upgrade pools
    with extreme caution, as all ZFS pool upgrades are one-way and only
    FreeNAS 9.1, FreeBSD 9-STABLE, and FreeBSD 8.4 currently support
    this ZFS pool format.

    10) To convert 8.* pluginjail to a 9.* pluginjail, please run the
    jail migration script like so (prior to configuring jails):

    /root/migrate_pluginjail.sh -D

    Any plugins installed will need to be updated manually, this can be done
    on the services->plugins page.

    The bug tracker for FreeNAS is available at http://support.freenas.org

    Discussion about FreeNAS occurs in the FreeNAS forums, located at:

    Sure, it's queued however this is the 2-3 hours per night that Josh who still moderates that list sleeps so it won't post until the AM.

    I'll be waiting for the release, but I'm wondering if Linux jails made it in? If not, will that be 9.2? Or when might it? It's a huge feature for me (I should be able to excess around 3 machines)

    Verify your SHA256 checksum as provided on the webpage. More than likely the file was corrupted during the download process.
