Version 6.9.1 2021-03-08

Notable Bug Fixes and Improvements

Fixed issue where code outside the Unraid OS Management Utility calling smartctl would set up conditions where devices would never spin down. Note: you still need @doron's SAS Spindown plugin to properly support SAS device spindown.

For Docker: if an in-tree GPU driver is loaded which results in creating /dev/dri/* device nodes, we set permissions for these nodes to 0777 in order to ease integration of containers using GPU for transcoding.

Typing 'exit' in a Terminal window will now close the window (yay!).

We added a 'no-cache' header to NoVNC web access so that future Unraid OS releases will no longer have stale web components.

Updated the openssl package to version 1.1.1j which has security updates.

Updated the Linux kernel to 5.10.21, a patch release to 5.10 LTS kernel.

Included kernel config settings necessary to include certain hardware monitoring devices and added support for new devices.

Driver Updates

The Nvidia GPU driver has been updated to 460.56 and should work with this kernel 5.10.21. Please install @ich777's Nvidia-Driver plugin to download and install this driver.
