Thank you, Tony.
I note that the Netatalk 2.2 code has now been released but only to paying customers ( http://www.netafp.com/open-letter-to-the-netatalk-community-501/).
We currently have several of MyBook World Edition NAS devices on our network, and I’m about to approve the purchase of a significant number of WD 6TB NAS devices. We’ve put this on hold until compatibility with OS X Lion 10.7 can be determined.
As it currently stands, the latest released version of the firmware for these devices is not compatible with Lion.
Do you have – or can you seek – an official word from Western Digital as to whether, and when, a firmware update will be available (even as a Beta) that will restore interoperability between the latest version of OS X (i.e. Lion) and your devices?
