Title: OPNsense 15.1.7 released
Post by: franco on February 28, 2015, 09:40:40 am
Hello everyone,

we are saddened by the news of Leonard Nimoy passing away. He has been an inspiration for many of us ever since Star Trek first flickered over the TV screens and all the years thereafter. What a strange world we’d live in if it weren’t for him? Thank you, Leonard, 15.1.7 is being released in your honour.

As we move forward, we’ve found that's new tool opnsense-update works really well for everybody and thus we are very happy with the new live upgrade path. To show you that we are super serious we are shipping the latest FreeBSD 10.1 release engineering and security advisories and encourage you to try it out. We also have numerous tweaks with regard to tightening security in Bind, OpenSSL, StrongSwan, OpenSSH as well as needed GUI fixes thanks to the steady stream of incoming reports. If you encounter an issue or even a slight hiccup, please let us know through any of the available channels.

How to upgrade:

Always backup your config. Do not try to go from the LibreSSL snapshot to OpenSSL. The parallel LibreSSL snapshot will be out by tomorrow.

Do a clean install using the desired install media. You can always import the old configuration from the installer if you already have an older installation.

Alternatively and experimentally, upgrade using the firmware update, then drop to a root shell and issue the following commands.

# opnsense-update && reboot

At this point, using any of the two methods, you should be on OPNsense 15.1.7-78bdb9aef FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE-p6.

This is the official change log:

Live long and prosper,
The OPNsense team
