OPNsense 21.7.8 released

January 27, 2022

Hello everyone,

To improve migration to the next version we are releasing this update
back to back with 22.1.  There is no immediate need to upgrade so plenty
of time to read and prepare.

Suffice to say this will be the last update of the 21.7 series.  Thank
you and see you on the other side.  :)
