OS 8.7 coming soon

Steve Tunstall
Principle Storage Engineer

I have not been updating this blog since last October, as I was diagnosed with cancer and started very intensive treatment. I am now in recovery, and coming back to work next week.

Just in time for a VERY EXCITING update of the ZFSSA with the new OS 8.7. I can't wait to share with you all the fantastic new features coming just next week. You all know I got in huge trouble for spilling the beans early a few years back, so this time I need to wait for the official announcement, but I promise it's coming soon, so hang in there!

    Thanks for the heads up/Blog post - Im

    looking forward to the new OS 8.7.... my wishlist is:

    - get a sane numbering scheme for the releases - Is anyone else

    getting fatigued of release names? LOL

    - support my ZFFSA ZS3-2 Cluster for years to come

    - SMB3 support (encrypted on wire Windows file sharing)
