Support SMB2 for OS X Maverics
Apple is going to drop AFP on OS X Maverics and will support SMB2 from Microsoft. Will Freenas have this support?
SMB2 provide better security and is alot faster. (Not CIFS)

According to the first 2 links Mavericks is only going to prefer SMB2 over AFP instead of OS X until 10.8.x. It's no going to drop AFP yet.
Apples' own implementation SMBX will support SMB2, that's the important thing.
FreeNAS has been shipping with Samba 3.6 - bringing support - since 803-RELEASE-p1 [[httpsourceforgenetprojectsfreenasfilesFreeNAS-831RELEASEREADME abour releases.
Technically FreeNAS does support SMB2 today (not SMB2.1 or the latest 3.0 though), the question is rather what version is currently set to default. - I don't have a FreeNAS box yet available but that's at least for relaxing the bug severity. The SMB version can be set in smb.conf at least.
