As expected, the final version of DSM 7.2 is LIVE as of May 22nd. With the RC version being released last month, it was expected to have a final version pushed if there were no major showstoppers.
So here are the release notes for the 7.2-64561 version:
- After installing this update, you will not be able to downgrade to a previous DSM version.
- This update will restart your Synology NAS.
- Starting from this version, logs for drives will no longer appear in Storage Manager > HDD and will be available only in Log Center.
- Removed the "Automatically create port forwarding rules" option from QuickConnect advanced settings to increase network security.
- Users can now create a Btrfs volume of up to 1 PB on specific Synology NAS models. This update automatically converts existing volumes that use the Btrfs (Peta Volume) file system to Btrfs. However, to create a volume larger than 200 TB, a RAID 6 storage pool and at least 64 GB of system memory are still required.Learn more
- The maximum single volume size supported by RS2423+/RS2423RP+ has been adjusted to 200 TB (with a minimum system memory requirement of 32 GB).
- Starting from this version, Windows Server 2008 domains will no longer be supported. After installing this update, current Windows Server 2008 domains will be unavailable.

- This version is released in a staged rollout.
Compared with the RC version, the 7.2 final has a few more fixes in place as well as a few important notes. So running and supporting Windows 2008 as of this version is no longer supported, so be mindful of that, as well as the increase in total volume size to 200TB for the RS2423+ models.
It is also important to note that while 7.2 will be supported on the x16-x19 models, all of them will not get DSM update notifications from within the system itself, the update needs to be executed manually.
