Week review

The last week i did some unspectacular but necessary and helpful modifications under the hood.

  • For example the event driven configuration change management has been improved, so it is really easy to monitor any changes in the configuration and start any action if required.
  • I also added JFS support after reading an interesting article in a German magazine. I think JFS is great if you want to store your data absolute safe. But this is a personal decision of everyone and i do not want to start a filesystem discussion at this point (these f**king ZFS discussion on FreeNAS was enough).
  • I also extended the WebUI framework to add additional informations to a form field:

  • Started to implement the SMB/CIFS service.
  • Finally i decided to choose the GPLv3 license for OMV.

Misc issues

Today i added a ‘Send test email’ button on the notification page where the user can configure its email settings and test them by sending a email.

I have also added XFS support.

Finish Zeroconf/mDNS service

The iTunes/DAAP service already uses Avahi to announce the music files to iTunes and any other DAAP client, so it was time to finish the Zeroconf feature. Now all services announce their service via mDNS, these are right at the moment: FTP, TFTP, SSH, NFS, DAAP and WebGUI.
