2.1 now release candidate tagged

We’ve tagged 2.1 as RC0, as release time nears. This means it’s feature-complete, and has no significant known regressions from prior releases. How much longer until release depends on what’s discovered from here out. We don’t anticipate there being a long release candidate cycle, given how widespread 2.1 usage has been over the past year plus. Now’s the time to help test!

Please post anything that requires follow up to the 2.1 board on the forum rather than the comments here on the blog. Far more people are active on the forum and will see it there.

The master branch in git has been bumped to 2.2-ALPHA in preparation for development on 2.2 release. We’ll soon be putting efforts into getting our patches and code up to speed for FreeBSD 10.x for 2.2 release.

    I want to steal a vote fro Hyper-V away, there are too many in the table and I might be able to sell the vote on ebay.

    A long release candidate cycle! When you release stable version?

  5. Brian Says:

    Will 2.1 support the VMXNET3 driver in VMware (with VLAN support), or is this not really a pfSense problem? I also would love to see a changelog. Thanks!

    It would be so good if finally pfSense could work on Hyper-V with CARP support!

    Yet another vote for Hyper-V support! Many corps are using it…

  18. Juri Says:

    And another one for Hyper-V.
    We are a hosting company and many of our customers need a virtual firewall, mainly for VPN purposes. As a hoster I surely can install one of those lets say UTM from Sophos or other, but those are way to heavy for what we need.

    Go for Hyper-V! 🙂

  19. Danil Says:

    + 1 vote for Hyper-V!! and CARP

  26. David Says:

    So I actually looked at the snapshots site again. I do see RC2. Oops. Kindly ignore one of my above -1’s.

    But the -1 for no news update, applies even more. 🙂

    So apparently lots of work has been going on, but none of us semi-casual users have been giving you guys credit. (!)

    I can’t be the only one who cares enough about pfSense to check your site/blog every couple of weeks, but not enough to actually hang out on the dev lists.

  27. Ian Lever Says:

    +2 vote for Hyper-V.

  28. Darvish Says:

    I’m completely agree with David.

  29. Darkk Says:

    I just upgraded to the 2.1 release today and it went smoothly. No issues so far.

    Great job guys!!

  30. Jeremy Says:

    I’m using 2.0.1 on Hyper V with Server 2012 and it works great, but I’d feel much better if it was officially supported. I’m afraid to update to 2.1 in case it breaks my install.

  31. Florian Says:

    Hyper-V support would just be perfect! Go for it dev team!!

  32. samsu Says:

    According to FreeBSD 10 ALPHA2 announcement they imported Hyper-V driver. It’s great for future 2.2 release.

  33. tushar jadhav Says:

    Great jobs guys, cannot wait for the 2.1 book and read it front to back, word for word and put all the information in my brain.


  34. Justin Says:

    I wanted to add to the long list of praise your team so deserves. Thank you all who contributed to this project as it is one of the best if not the best out there in the wild. keep up the stellar work and hope to enjoy more developments in the near future.

  35. garegin Says:

    another hyper-v user here. I think you need to create a fixed disk. it doesn’t work with dynamically expanding disks

  36. savun Says:

    Thanks for your kindly upgrade .
    I just test the new version now.


  37. motty Says:

    Please include WCCP protocol support along with pfsense then only the working of proxy and web content filter become more aggressive and reliable

  38. pfsense rocks Says:

    Looking forward to the shiny in this new version.

  39. Morne Says:

    Is there a ETA on Hyper-v support for this or will it never happen.

    But thanks for the great product.

  40. Alex Says:

    How about Hyper-v support ?? This is critical for some of us

  41. jbower Says:

    request for a build with Zootie patch be build for download as you killed the old download links, I’d think is not to hard to publish a offical ISO.
