Synology® Nouveau firmware 4.1 en version Beta – DSM 4.1-2567

logo Synology

Le rythme de sortie des firmwares et des nouvelles fonctionnalités qui les accompagnent, ne faiblit pas chez SYNOLOGY avec la sortie du nouveau firmware 4.1 – DSM 4.1-2567


Selon moi, la première des nouveautés de ce firmware est le serveur mail qui était resté longtemps sans évolution. Bientôt, vous aurez droit à ça :

Serveur messagerie synology

Avec comme nouveautés :

– La gestion du mail pour plusieurs domaines, même si la solution choisie par Synology ne me plait que moyennement. A priori, un compte mail reste rattaché à un compte utilisateur du synology, il ne semble pas possible de les gérer indépendant. Pour mon utilisation, cela devrait être suffisant.

–  Le serveur mail est géré désormais comme un package

– Les alias

– L’intégration de spam assassin et d’un black-listing dns

– Journaux du mail

– Gestion des transferts automatiques et réponses automatiques.


Synology intègre désormais une gestion de vos films avec Video Station . Video Station est un organisateur vidéo pour votre collection de films, vos émissions de télévision et vos films personnels. Il cherche les informations vidéo sur Internet automatiquement et diffuse les vidéos sur votre iPad ou iPhone. L’application peine tout de même à reconnaitre mes films asiatiques.

Vous pouvez également diffuser ou enregistrer les programmes TV numériques avec un dongle TV numérique USB branché sur votre DiskStation. La liste des Dongle est assez restrictive (limitée à quelques modèles).

Video station

Une application sur Iphone DS Video devrait prochainement sortir.
