DSM 4.2 : scheduled tasks

If you have manually defined scheduled tasks in /etc/crontab, you can remove it and use the 'Scheduled tasks' tool embedded in the new DSM version to create your scheduled tasks.
Please be carefull that the tool uses its own config file in order to define the tasks (/usr/syno/etc/scheduled_tasks) and do not merge info with the crontab file when upgrading to DSM 4.2...

The /etc/crontab file is now only used to launch the tasks defined by the 'Scheduled tasks' tool.

Nevertheless, and hopefully, tasks defined manually in the crontab file are still working...
