New OPNsense Release

OPNsense 18.7.5 released

Hi folks,

While the HardenedBSD 11.2 adoption is almost finished behind the scenes, this release merely revolves around minor corrections and additions that make your life easier. We are also confident that 18.7.6 finally ships the firewall alias API.

Of worthy mention are also the IPsec phase 1 changes that allow multiple DH groups and hashes to be selected simultaneously to tackle interoperability between different mobile client requirements. Also check out the Nginx plugin which has again extended its utility belt to include limiting, permanent bans, caching and more.
