New OPNsense Release

OPNsense 19.1.2 released

Good evening,

This update is the sum of a few weeks of intense testing and debugging
in areas such as WAN DHCP with very short lease times, Suricata IPS not
working as expected, stacked 6RD setups that have overly long device names
amongst others.

The update may be a bit bumpy this time since the web GUI session directory
will be moved to a safer location.  You will be logged out during the update
and the system will reboot due to the included operating system update.  As
soon as it is back you will be able to log in as usual.

LibreSSL received a major upgrade from 2.7 to 2.8. If you are using LibreSSL
and see any issues please do let us know because it sadly looks like third
party projects such as OpenVPN, Squid, StrongSwan and NTP leave the use of
LibreSSL to the few users who are able to fix the source code builds on their
own and we want to ideally avoid having to patch third party software.

Here are the full patch notes:

o system: move session files into their own directory (forces the current sessions to expire)
o system: add validation check for time period for Dpinger (contributed by Team Rebellion)
