3.8-3 update. Flash optimizations, UI enhancements and bug fixes

Rockstor 3.8-3 update is now available. Since the last release was a bit unusually dense as far as our frequent small releases go, this time around, we decided to focus on small but many important optimizations, enhancements and bug fixes. We made Rockstor work better for flash deployments, so if you are running Rocsktor from a USB stick or SSD storage of some sort, these optimizations will be useful.

We’ve also revived our websocket code and designed a simple yet scalable framework to pass on updates efficiently back to the UI for such things as service statuses. There’s more work being done using websockets that will make UI a lot more functional and snappier. So stay tuned for our future release updates.

Last but not least, we’ve fixed a bunch of minor bugs and added several enhancements. There’s been a steady flow of information on our community forum which helped us identify and make these small but important improvements. So a big thank you to our community!

This is the detailed list of changes in this release:

1. Optimize Rockstor for usb flash drive and ssd deployments. #724 @schakrava @phillxnet

2. Improve Rock-on logging with syslog. #723 @schakrava

3. Revive and enhance websocket framework and the WebUI. #706 @gkadillak @phillxnet

4. Make service state changes persist across reboot. #660 @schakrava @phillxnet

As always, update your Rockstor installation via web-ui. If you are new to Rockstor, watch the short video that demonstrates this process.
