Hey sorry everyone for not announcing this sooner, and also sorry for our sparse involvement in the last week.  Both myself and Lime Tech corp are in the process of moving, and coincidentally Jon is moving as well.  Eric is busy chasing problems with various compilation errors getting unRAID OS running on the latest linux kernel.  I'm anticipating being fully back to work on June 1, Jon should be sooner.

Hope everything goes well with all the moves. Be sure to take some time to enjoy the holiday weekend.

..and most importantly, how does Limetech people move their unraids? Whole, or with all drives removed and packaged separately?

I can't speak for Lime Tech, but I can relate my own experience 3 years ago when I moved.  I didn't want to trust the movers with my PC's and server, so I moved these all myself. 

 

My unRAID server is a large, 24-bay X-Case rackmount, and I find it pretty heavy on it's own.  Even with just 16 drives installed, I found it too heavy for me to manage on my own.  So I pulled the drives, and with a black sharpie marker, I wrote the bay number on each drive, and then bubble-wrapped and boxed them.

 

Once I was at the destination, I double-checked all my cabling, and reinserted the drives into their original bays.  Everything came up perfectly.

 

I hope the various Lime Tech moves went well.

Luckily this step is no longer necessary.

No, still required.  For psychological reasons only, though.  We all have our demons.

Ok, move pretty much complete.  Quite a pain moving both residence and corp headquarters at the same time!

FYI here's a brief history:

  • circa 2005/2006: unRAID born, Sunnyvale, CA
  • 2008-2011: Fort Collins, CO
  • 2012-early 2018: San Diego, CA (incorporated 2015)
  • present: Anaheim, CA (no, we're not in the tree house in Disneyland)

Jon, meanwhile, moved within the same city near Chicago.

 

Next up: release 6.5.3-rc2, which brings us up-to-date with linux 4.14 LTS kernel, along with a handful of bug fixes.  As soon as that release is promoted to stable we'll get unRAID 6.6 next release out there.

 

Thanks to everyone for your patience during this time.

Any teasers you'd like to drop for features in 6.6? :D

 

I believe it's already been stated that it'll be running the latest stable Kernel :)  (4.16.y)

 

Not heard of much else though :P

He was wondering if Limetech quit which would explain why the forums were so quiet, but that is not quite the case and they were just moving. ?

Hey Lime Tech,

 

Just curious if the compilation errors are still a problem. 

 

I see 4.18 is coming out in a week, which made me wonder if that would fix the compilation errors if they were still a problem..

It has been very quiet :(  

 

There have been loads of commits into the webgui GitHub repo. New functionality I saw there is CPU Pinning for Docker containers.
