OPNsense 16.1.8 released
This quick 16.1.8 release is not a big update, but it means a lot. We have finished our full sweep of the GUI to update the look and feel of all pages and made the code ready for what is to come now: new features that are on our roadmap for 16.7. The first one will be the HTTPS proxy, but there is also NetFlow and improved statistics / reporting on the shortlist.
A day after 16.1.7 was out last week, FreeBSD 10.2-RELEASE-p14 was announced. Of the four patches enclosed, the two Hyper-V patches we have already brought to OPNsense over a month ago, the OpenSSH patch does not apply since we only use the port and already had it up-to-date. That leaves us with only one patch that we are shipping now to complete the experience.
Attention to everyone using OpenVPN + cryptodev acceleration: the cryptodev module along with older crypto drivers has been removed from the kernel itself, which means that if you need to keep using it, go to System: Settings: Misc and reconfigure your crypto hardware including an enable of cryptodev usage.
New images based on 16.1.8 will be out early next week.
