New OPNsense Release

OPNsense 21.1.6 released

Hi there,

With a bit of delay we bring to you the usual mix of security and
reliablilty updates.  It is of note that the OpenVPN advisory tracked
as CVE-2020-15078 does not affect the provided version 2.4.11, but the
security audit will falsely flag it as vulnerable because the source
of the audit is FreeBSD where OpenVPN was migrated to 2.5 series already.

Plans for upcoming 21.1.x versions include a swift Phalcon 4 migration as
well as Python 3.8 and PHP 7.4 updates.

Here are the full patch notes:
