Title: OPNsense 15.1.2 released
Post by: franco on January 18, 2015, 08:08:39 pm
Hi folks,

some of you have been wondering; now wonder no more: the next stable release is here. From the changelog:

* firmware upgrade experience improvements
* FreeBSD SA-15:01 with multiple OpenSSL fixes
* OpenSSL from ports now brings you the latest and greatest 1.0.1l
* pkg 1.4.6 hot off the press

The images can be found here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/opnsense/files/

This is mostly motivated by the latest OpenSSL issues, although I must say we work on giving libressl a chance soon and make a final decision about the library that we are going to stick to from 15.7 on. Any help here is appreciated. :)

Recommended ways of upgrade:

(1) Upgrade via the GUI, make sure you restart the box so that no service will run on vulnerable binaries. The base OpenSSL will *not* be updated at this point, so if you don't fully trust the port just yet try (2).

(2) Take your favourite image, boot up the device or VM with the new install image. In the installer, choose "Import Configuration" and if all is well, continue with the Easy/Quick install. This way makes sure all of the base system is replaced.
