Synology has released a new version of its NAS operating system for public beta.
DSM 4.1 beta introduces a new Video Station feature for organizing video collections. Video Station also supports USB tuners enabling live TV or scheduled recording and allows iOS users to manage it and watch shows on the run.
The Cloud Station package gets usability updates including private folders and sharing two folders.
Other improvements include:
- Personal Audio Station allows for individual music libraries and playlists on the same DiskStation.
- DS photo+, DS finder, and DS audio are released for Windows Phone 7
- Improved thumbnail generation speed
- VAAI certification for improved performance with VMware®
- Bandwidth control by user by protocol
- Improved logging and IOPS monitoring for historical and real-time statistics
- Support for NTLMv2 and Kerberos v5 for enhanced ADS security
- Shared Folder Sync now allows synching many DiskStations to one for centralized backups
Synology will award a new DS213air to the three beta testers who provide the most valuable assistance and feedback during the program. Synology DSM 4.1 beta is free to download for users who own a DiskStation or RackStation x09 series and later.
