Synology has updated DSM 6.1 to version 6.1.4-15217 with 22 itemized updates and fixes. This bumps the release from “.3” to “.4” after eight updates to the initial .3 release which was released in July. Several of these are fixes patch security vulnerabilities so the update should be applied as soon as practical. I’ve applied the update to both DS1815+ and DS1511+ models without any issues. The update does immediately restart the NAS so plan accordingly.
