FreeNAS 9.10-RELEASE Announced

The FreeNAS team announced availability of FreeNAS 9.10-RELEASE, latest stable release of FreeBSD based storage operating system that can be installed virtually on any hardware platform to share data over a network.

FreeNAS 9.10 is an intermediate release between the 9.3 series and 10.x series. FreeNAS 10.x is expected to come in few months, it uses same UI and middleware used in FreeNAS 9.3, but behind the hood, it will be based on FreeBSD 10.3-RC3.

From official release mail of FreeNAS 9.3-RELEASE
Coincident with this release of 9.10, we are also placing 9.3 into maintenance mode and will only be pushing further updates to the 9.3-STABLE train in response to the most critical security advisories or product flaws. We therefore strongly suggest that all current users of 9.3 upgrade to 9.10 in order to continue to benefit from the ongoing maintenance and bug fix work we will be doing on the 9.10-STABLE Train.

A note on jails for 9.10:  As you will see in the release notes, the FreeNAS jail templates have also been updated to FreeBSD 10.3.  Due to the way templates are cached, however, anyone currently using jails (including plugins) will continue to use the cached (already fetched) 9.3 jail templates.  This is not really a problem since FreeBSD 10 is backwards compatible with 9.3 and all existing plugins and jails should continue to function normally after the upgrade, but should you create any new jails or plugins, you may be surprised to note that they're also using the 9.3 templates.
