Synology Changelog DSM 5.0-4458

Ya tenemos el changelog para la versión oficial de DSM 5.0, es difícil saber en un primer momento las modificaciones que incorpora respecto a la última beta disponible pero podemos hacernos una rápida idea de algunas de algunas de ellas, como novedades adelanto que ya funciona de nuevo el buscador BitTorrent de NewPCT que fallaba en muchos modelos en la beta de DSM 5.0, además con la versión oficial ya hay soporte para el Google Chromecast que estaba a la espera de la certificación de Google y parece que ya ha llegado.

Paralelamente el mostrar la previsión meteorológica en la ventana de login de DSM si utilizabas una conexión segura HTTPS, y recuerda que es necesario actualizar gran parte de las app's de Synology para que sean compatibles con esta versión de DSM.

En esta versión como bugs reconocidos nos encontramos con:
  • Problema en la sincronización con Google Drive en la que si no se sincronizar los archivos en el intervalo de una hora deberemos volver a transferir los archivos
  • Los usuarios deben establecer manualmente los permisos para el usuario Plex en el Panel de Control  para permitir que la aplicación Plex Media Server pueda leer la carpeta compartida con los archivos multimedia.

Errores Corregidos:

Logitech Media Server
  • The album and movie covers might not display correctly
  • Media formats that require transcoding might not work

Windows File Services
  • SMB2 does not support the extended attributes for Mac OS X 10.9.1 in DSM 5.0 beta. For files and folders with certain types of extended attributes named "resource fork", such as custom icon and default application settings, the main file/folder context will be saved without any resource fork data.

Cloud Station
  • Cloud Station computer client version 2.0-2391 and 2.0-2402 will not be automatically upgraded.

Photo Station
  • Photos or videos stored in shared folders which have converted to Windows ACL or created in DSM 5.0 may not be copied to Photo Station from the web uploading interface. To solve this, please go to Control Panel > Shared Folders, and assign Read permission to the http group on the shared folder in question.

Central Management System
  • Cannot add Synology NAS servers with passwords that include these characters +, ?, %, &.
The URL is incorrect when launching apps from a remote server over an HTTPS connection.

DSM Desktop
  • The network traffic section of the Resource Monitor widget shows “0 KB/s” when it is minimized to the taskbar.

Backup & Replication
  • To backup system configurations, a backup task must be created in Backup & Replication.

Antivirus Essential & McAfee
  • The button to update virus definitions is not hidden when using certain display languages. To find the button, please change the display language to English.

For shared folders created in DSM 4.3 or earlier, you can either convert the existing permissions to Windows ACL, or leave the permission unchanged.
The shared folders - photo, surveillance, and shares on external storage or volume with ext3 file system cannot use Windows ACL permissions.

Disk health information includes the current and historical health of hard disks
SSD Cache
Read/Write cache is supported. Two identical SSDs can be combined to create a RAID 1 read-write cache and enhance the performance of a volume or block-level iSCSI LUN.
A high-availability cluster cannot be created when SSD read-write cache is enabled.

Package Center

The “http” group (http) is the service account for Web Station, introducing better flexibility and security. Web applications will run as the same permission as “http” group. We suggest reviewing the permissions of the web folder and assign appropriate permissions to http group.
The PHP version has been updated to 5.5. Please check the compatibility of your PHP-based web apps with php 5.5. The details can be found at Migrating from PHP 5.3.x to PHP 5.4.x and Migrating from PHP 5.4.x to PHP 5.5.x.

Support for SPDY v3.0 accelerates the overall responsiveness of the user interface when using HTTPS connections.

Memory Compression
Least recently used data in memory is compressed, improving system responsiveness when under heavy load.

Connecting up to two USB Wi-Fi adapters is supported, allowing your Synology NAS to share its Internet connection via both 2.4GHz and 5GHz ranges.
You can bridge your wired connection with Wi-Fi hotspot(s) to extend your wireless network range and unify your existing local network and the wireless network hosted on your DiskStation.

Snapshot Manager
Synology Snapshot Manager software plugin available on vSphere and Windows Server environments to create application-consistent snapshots in DSM.
For VMware environments, you can install Synology Snapshot Manager for VMware vCenter Server on Windows Server. After installation, when a snapshot is triggered on DSM, vCenter Server will be notified and flush all the data from memory to the LUN to guarantee data consistency. Once the snapshot is complete, vCenter Server will resume normal I/O operation of VMware datastore.
For Windows environment, you can install Synology Snapshot Manager for Windows Server. After installation, when a snapshot is triggered on DSM, Synology Snapshot Manager will use the Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) technology to produce consistent point-in-time copies of data.

Iba a decir que han quitado el VPN client! Pero yo mismo me corrijo, No! (simplemente lo han cambiado de menu).

VPN client settings have been integrated into Network > Network Interface.

Decir que hay un pequeño bug en mail server, ahora que ha dejado también de ser beta. Los correos se quedan en la cola de espera de ser entregado tanto si te llegan como si lo mandas. Has de desmarcar la casilla de Spammassassin ( me parece que me cole con las "eses")

Ya se ha actualizado el susodicho servidor de correo, solventando el fallo (comprobado). Hay que reiniciar Perl para que cargue el servidor, por lo menos en mi caso.

Muchas gracias por comentar modificaciones y sobretodo errores!

No consigo que mi Macbook Pro con iTunes 11 "vea" la música que tengo compartida con iTunes Server. Ni reinstalando, ni reindexando... desesperado. Alguien tiene una solución o le pasa algo parecido????

Si utilizo el buscador de Torrents desde un navegador web de un PC me funciona perfectamente, pero el buscador de torrent de la app "DS Download" de iPhone no me funciona desde que instalé DSM 5.0.
¿A alguien más le pasa?

Otro mas con el mismo problema

Hola, desde que he actualizado solo puedo abrir file station, las demás aplicaciones están detenidas y al ejecutarlas me pone (Actualizando base de datos. Vuelva a intentarlo mas tarde)

A mi me pasa lo mismo. Me aparece el error "Actualizando base de datos. Vuelva a intentarlo mas tarde" si trato de instalar o ejecutar Video Station, Download Station, Photo Station, y otras....

Bueno Pucelano7, que hoy han actualizado Download Station, y que las búsquedas en la app ya están operativas.
No es un punto del que hayan dicho nada pero esta resuelto.

Aguien sabe cómo se puede solucionar el problema del (Actualizando base de datos. Vuelva a intentarlo mas tarde)?

Cuando sucede ese pequeño problema debería solucionarse simplemente reiniciando el NAS, lo has probado?

a mi me lo sigue haciendo. alguien ha podido sulucionarlo?

Estamos a 2015 y sigue el problema. A mi me pasa lo mismo. Me aparece el error "Actualizando base de datos. Vuelva a intentarlo mas tarde. Ni reiniciando se soluciona. Sugerencias?
