OpenMediaVault 1.0 was released today as a Debian-based network attached storage (NAS) solution that uses Nginx, its own dashboard with widgets support, and other original features.

OpenMediaVault 1.0 is codenamed "Kralizec" and based off Debian Wheezy while being designed to run on x86 hardware as well as low-power ARM systems like the Raspberry Pi. Nginx powers OMV's web GUI. The OpenMediaVault 1.0 release has many bug fixes, better performance on low-end systems, automatic discard support for non-rotating drivers with modern Linux file-systems, improvements for plug-ins, quarantine support with ClamAV, various security improvements, and a whole lot of other changes over earlier development versions.
