New OPNsense Release

OPNsense 19.1.4 released


An UEFI boot panic scenario was debugged last week with the help of the community. This update includes a fix that will allow the ones affected by this 19.1 issue to upgrade or install (and boot of course) correctly. We are also including the IPsec VTI support and the latest Suricata 4.1.3 with stability and compatibility fixes.

Due to the severity of the UEFI boot panic 19.1.4 will be the new initial release for all upgrades from 18.7 within a day or two depending on additional testing and confirmation. Last but not least there will be new images some time next week to put this fully behind us. Thank you for your patience and understanding.  :)

Special thanks go to the team of Synacktiv for reporting a packet filter IPv6 vulnerability for which a patch was included as well.
