Unraid is a popular operating system for those running servers and DIY network-attached storage (NAS). The team roll out frequent updates that include changes as well as fixes for any bugs spotted by the community. Today, we’re looking at Unraid 6.11.3.
What is Unraid 6.11.3?
Unraid 6.11.3 is a smaller update than usual, hence the small bump in the version number. It’s always recommended a backup be generated prior to updating the OS on any live environment. Here’s everything that’s included in this release.
- Reverted ‘libpopt.so.0.0.1’ to workaround ‘sgdisk’ bug preventing the format devices larger than 2TB.
- Fixed an issue where description setting for ‘root’ user was not preserved across reboots.
- Fixed an issue where sometimes the information window opens empty.
- Set correct values when editing for USB Boot and correct Share Selection.
- Added Nic boot order.
- gptfdisk: version 1.0.8 (revert from version 1.0.9)
- libXext: version 1.3.5
- libXinerama: version 1.1.5
- libdrm: version 2.4.114
- libedit: version 20221030_3.1
- mcelog: version 190
- ntfs-3g: version 2022.10.3
- openssl: version 1.1.1s
- openssl-solibs: version 1.1.1s
- pixman: version 0.42.2
- sessreg: version 1.1.3
- sudo: version 1.9.12p1
- xsetroot: version 1.1.3
That’s quite a hefty update with plenty of changes included. Although Unraid 6.11.3 could be considered a minor update, it’s recommended everyone update. Notably, a base library was reverted due to a bug that prevents formatting devices larger than 2TB in size.
