There’s plenty of information in the article for ZFS newbies and advanced users alike. Be sure to check out the article over at Ars Technica to learn more about ZFS concepts including pools, vdevs, datasets, snapshots, and replication, just to name a few.

We are making some changes to the FreeNAS and TrueNAS bug tracker that’ll give you yet another way to help contribute and democratize enterprise storage. We will be replacing Feature and Improvement requests for the TrueNAS Community, simplifying things down to two options: Bugs and Suggestions.
TrueNAS versions 11.3-U2 and 11.3-U2.1 are generally available! These updates are based on FreeNAS 11.3-U2 which has had over 50k deployments and received excellent community and third party reviews. TrueNAS 11.3 represents another major advancement in the functionality and quality of the leading Open Storage platform.
FreeNAS 11.3 has a very rich set of features, and TrueNAS CORE adds incrementally and significantly to that list of features. No features are being harmed in the transition to TrueNAS CORE. In fact, “CORE” is an acronym that makes a commitment to our community that all the core functionality that FreeNAS users love will always be included in TrueNAS CORE, the best free NAS software.
In this tutorial, we’re going to talk about setting up Users, Permissions, and ACLs in FreeNAS. ACL stands for Access Control List, which designates access control entries for users and administrators on FreeNAS systems, specifically for Windows SMB shares.
