pfSense 2.3 Update 1 Available

Since the new pkg system enables us to update pieces of the system individually, rather than the monolithic updates of the past, we have released a patch that fixes the NTP CVEs covered by FreeBSD SA 16:16.ntp. Updating ntpd from 4.2.8p6 to 4.2.8p7 is the only change.
This update appears as 2.3_1, for update 1. This should not be confused with 2.3.1, which is a full maintenance release coming soon. 2.3_1 is only available for those already running 2.3 release.
Note for this update, your version number will remain the same afterwards, still showing as 2.3-RELEASE.
This update does not trigger a reboot. The NTP service needs to be manually restarted under Status>Services afterwards.

OPNsense 16.1.12 released

The progress for our upcoming version 16.7 now accumulates to 3 full months. To that end we are making the transition from ALPHA to BETA on the 16.7 development series. And since we have been asked to incorporate development change logs as well, look no further (well, look below).
Anyway, 16.1.12 brings a handful of anticipated additions like FreeBSD’s package manager version 1.7.2 and the ability to use CoDel / FQ-Codel in the traffic shaper. We have also started to move services to the plugin framework instead of having them in the base installation. And, maybe as a last point, initial work for fixing the trusty apinger utility for gateway monitoring has surfaced.
