1.0.1 RELEASED!

As promised, we found some bug(s) in 1.0 and have fixed them.

1.0.1 is now making its way to the mirrors and here is a rundown of the bugs fixed:

  • Set maximum cache size for apc to 7 megabytes
  • Restart check_reload_status if it exits
  • Misc syslog.conf fixes
  • Snort now blocks traffic correctly
  • PF does not know about congestion flags, remove from shaper
  • Misc OpenNTPD system logging tab fixes
  • Removes states from a user when disconnected by Captive Portal
  • Fix FTP helper when strict LAN or Optional LAN rules are in place
  • ZoneEdit now works
  • Filter reloads rules correctly after changes
  • Faster, snappier webConfigurator and console

As always, updates can be found in the “updates” section of the “download” portion of the pfSense site.

1.0-RELEASED!

The pfSense team is excited to bring you our first ever real release!

That is right, 1.0 is finally blessed and is making its way to the mirrors now. We have tried really hard to eliminate all bugs but with any software we expect to find some as this release will be used by a lot more people. With that said, there are a few problems that you should be aware of. Check this wiki article to see the release caveats.

Other than the few small items mentioned in the above wiki article 1.0 is solid and performs quite well. We are rather proud of our work.

So grab 1.0 and install it this weekend and head over to our forum and post your experiences, good or bad. Also, please digg our release notice!

Happy pfSensing!

1.0-RC3c released

I have pushed out another update that corrects the interface alias assignments when using carp.

IE (from /tmp/rules.debug):

# cat /tmp/rules.debug | grep carp
lan = “{ fxp1 carp1 }”
wan = “{ fxp0 carp0 carp2 carp3 }”

Please update and make sure it does not break your config. 1.0 is approaching rapidly!

1.0-RC3 released!

After a long bug hunting run, the pfSense team is proud to bring you 1.0-RC3!

With this release, we bring you these performance improvements:

  • Filter reload speed has improved by a power of atleast 5. What used to take 1.5-2 minutes to reload (if you are using traffic shaping, etc on slower hardware) is down to about 18 seconds. Average speed without traffic shaping on a 266 mhz is about 8 seconds now.
  • Bootup speeds are now a *LOT* faster. For example on my WRAP 266 the bootup has gone from about 2:07 down to 1:08.
  • General webConfigurator speeds have been improved quite a bit. For example it used to take about 45 seconds to mount the compact flash card to RW status. Now it takes about 8. This affects any page that needs to write out configuration data.

RC2 released

pfSense RC2 hit the streets last week.

So far there have only been less than a handful of bugs found. Get it from a mirror near you and check out Bill’s blog for a summary of the changes.

If you happen to be impacted by one of the bugs recently found you can run the following from a shell to update:

fetch -q -o – http://www.pfsense.com/~sullrich/update_to_rc2a.sh | sh –

I should stress that you only run the above command if you know you are impacted by one of the bugs.

As always, please test it like its going out of style and report anything you find.

1.0 is incredibly close!
