Synology DSM 5.2-5967 has been released

Synology just released another update for DSM.

Synology has released a new version of DSM and I can confirm that it’s working on the latest Xpenology boot image (5.2-5644.5). Just upgrade from the user interface, but make sure that you are not accidentally upgrading to DSM 6.

Update 02.05.2016: Hardware & Power settings seems to be broken in this build. I recommend you wait for a new boot image before upgrading past DSM_5.2-5644

Version: 5.2-5967 (2016/04/28)

What's New

This update includes all bug fixes as well as security fixes in the previously released updates since DSM 5.2-5644.
Fixed Issue

Improved performance of backup tasks and data restoring in Backup & Restore.
Improved backup stability in Backup & Restore when files are being edited.
You may now choose to reset the system without resetting the password at Control Panel > Update & Restore.
Added full-speed fan mode to provide the best cooling effects for Synology NAS.
Fixed multiple vulnerabilities regarding Samba module (CVE-2016-2118, CVE-2015-5370, CVE-2016-2110, CVE-2016-2111, CVE-2016-2112, CVE-2016-2113, CVE-2016-2114, CVE-2016-2115).

To enhance the security level, Synology's default administrator account "admin" with the blank password will no longer be allowed and will be disabled after this update. It is also highly recommended that you increase the password strength of all accounts belonging to the administrators group.
Fixed an issue where permission settings for a shared folder could not be edited in Windows if the folder was mounted via SMB.
