2.0-RC1 Now Available!

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Years and many thousands of hours in the making, pfSense 2.0 Release Candidate 1 is now available! Most of the mirrors are synced up and have it available now, with the remaining couple syncing within the next few hours.

List of new features and changes is available here.

This is considered a stable release suitable for production use, as we’ve already widely deployed it over the past several months in beta and upgraded numerous systems to RC1 over the weekend. This is the preferred version for new installations at this point.

For existing 1.2.x users, upgrading will be a smooth process for most if not all scenarios. Some portions of the configuration are considerably different now than in 1.2.x releases, and we suspect there may be some configuration upgrade problems remaining, though we aren’t aware of any specific issues at this time and have tested a wide variety of configurations. If you encounter any upgrade issues, please post to the 2.0 board on the forum with information.

Please report any problems, questions or comments to the 2.0 board on the forum.

How many more RC releases (if any) we will see and when the final official release happens is yet to be determined. It will see wider use now, but we were already seeing in excess of 2500 unique IPs per week downloading 2.0 snapshots, so it’s been widely tested.

Enjoy!
