1.3 ALPHA snapshots are now available for testing! These bring significant changes from 1.2, and are vastly different from the 1.2.1 snapshots that are also now available. The 1.2.1 snapshots are only bug fixes to 1.2 release. These 1.3 snapshots bring you all the great new features that have been added to pfSense over the past 8 months. The 1.3 new features tag on this blog will show you some past posts discussing a number of the great additions in this release.
Upgrading to 2.0 Snapshots
Upgrading from 1.2 to 2.0 has not been tested much. Be prepared to reinstall if you do try it.
Snapshot File Naming Convention
The file naming convention for snapshot releases has changed. They now include the date and time of the snapshot build. This is in YYYYmmdd format, and is in the local time of the build servers (Louisville, US Eastern). This makes the snapshots sort properly by date, and makes it easier for those of us who keep lots of snapshots to retain them with unique names. It also means we will never interrupt anyone’s download by overwriting with a new snapshot. Several builds will be retained in these folders for 1-2 days – make sure you get the newest build available.
New Forum Board for 2.0 Snapshots
Please keep all forum 2.0 discussion in the 2.0 Snapshot Feedback and Problems board. If you try these snapshots, we would appreciate feedback on your experiences.
General questions can be posed here as a comment, or on the forum. If you have a specific problem to report, please do not leave it as a comment, rather use the forum. This allows us to work with you on issues without creating a mess in the comments here.
