About a month after releasing the beta version , Synology announced today the release of the third major revision of its robust Linux-based firmware for DiskSation NAS servers. The firmware is called DiskStation Manager 3.0 and will work on all of Synology's NAS servers made in 2007 or later.

The new version of the operating system boasts many new features, including the ability to multitask within its Web-based user interface. You can now open the user management function in one window and the surveillance system in another; these windows are kept within the Web interface and you can move back and forth between them. This makes the new Web interface resemble a standalone operating system.

The new version of the firmware also offers Windows access control list support, IPv6 integration, WebDAV support, EXT4, enhanced Surveillance Station 5, and support for both iPhone and Android versions of Synology apps, which can be downloaded for free.

The new DiskStation Manager 3.0 is available now and can be downloaded here for free.
