Rockstor 3.8-12 is now available! This is our fourth release update in the Stable channel and we are encouraged by the support of subscribers as we continue to improve Rockstor. Thanks for keeping the project alive.
We’ve created a new 3.8-12 ISO downloadable from here for new users. After installation, please purchase Stable update subscription and take advantage of many benefits that come with it. Existing subscribers on the other hand, can update easily from the Web-UI.
3.8-12 release cycle was very different compared to the ones before. Usually, we work on a couple of bigger items, like a brand new feature or two and a bunch of smaller enhancements and bug fixes. But this time, there has been much more community activity with users reporting bugs and requesting minor improvements to existing features. So we focused entirely on closing as many user reported issues as possible and closed 26 issues in total. In a continuing trend, that is a few more issues than the previous one.
I am really pleased to see every feature of Rockstor being used by more and more users. We are eager to keep up with the community and make swift improvements. Over all, we’ve improved many features including AD integration, S.M.A.R.T, Rock-Ons among others. Happy to finally close the Tenaya milestone!
