FreeNAS 9.1.0 RC2 available

FreeNAS 9.1.0 RC2 is available on the download page. RC2 is still pre-production software, please use with caution.

Plugins available in a properly configured repo may now be installed in one step, which will configure and install a plugin jail if that has not yet been done. Administrators may choose alternate repos.

The image size has been reduced to 2GB – this means upgrades from FreeNAS 8.0.1 and later are now supported. Always back up your configuration and data before performing upgrades, especially to non-production versions.

    Great news on reducing the image size. Does upgrading from RC1 to RC2 reduce the existing partitions or does it maintain the 4GB sizes? (I guess I can just test it in my ESXi lab and see).
