QNAP heeft versie 4.3.5 uitgebracht van de firmware die op diverse modellen van zijn nas-apparaten staat. In versie 4.3 wordt onder meer in heldere grafieken weergegeven hoeveel recources er worden gebruikt, worden de prestaties automatisch geoptimaliseerd aan de hand van hoe de nas gebruikt wordt en kunnen Time Machine back-ups nu via smb worden gemaakt. Verder is er ondersteuning voor exFAT, waar overigens wel een aparte licentie voor moet worden aangeschaft, en hebben alle multimedia-apps een makeover gekregen. In versie 4.3.5 zijn verder nog de volgende veranderingen en verbeteringen toegevoegd:
- To ensure system functionality, after updating QTS to 4.3.5, please also update Container Station to 1.9 in App Center before enabling QVR Pro.
- The RADVD service previously did not have an outgoing interface. Please reconfigure the RADVD service after upgrading.
- Due to security concerns, support for "Wi-Fi ad-hoc mode" has been removed.
- This QTS update changes the file system of the system partition to ext4 for ARM-based models with Annapurna Labs processors. For data security reasons, you are not able to downgrade QTS to a previous version after this update.
Affected models: TS-131P, TS-231P, TS-431P, TS-531P, TS-231+, TS-431+, TS-231P2, TS-431P2, TS-431X, TS-431X2, TS-531X, TS-831X, TS-1231XU-RP, TS-1231XU, TS-831XU-RP, TS-831XU, TS-431XU-RP, TS-431XU, TS-431XeU, and TS-1635.

- When QTS 4.3.x is installed on NAS models running on 64-bit Intel and AMD processors, some applications may not be supported. To check if installed apps on your NAS are compatible with QTS 4.3.x, download the QTS 64-bit compatibility tool and install it on your current QTS build.
