The old packages system has been removed and is going to be replaced. Some things have been imported into the code base already (e.g. OpenVPN client exporter), others are currently rewritten from scratch for our new MVC framework (e.g. Proxy using squid).

Some packages that don't require a GUI like git or vim are available from the command line using FreeBSD's pkgng.

I'd also like to see dansguardian in the build someday as it is very useful with squid. Especially with the devices that are offered with OPNsense and integrated SSD it makes sense to have such packages inside.

I know it's early days, but is there a structured way we can express our interest for certain packages?

Personally I'd love to see tinyproxy and fail2ban available for OPNsense in a nicely managed way from the GUI.

Hi, Franco has put a opendns client into opnsense. This service is free and is supporting access control. I use this service for years.  It has a excellent url filtering and does not load the box with performance requirements. On the downside its only for IPv4. Jakob

I'm adding squidguard and e2guardian as optional packages, but there is no immediate plan to implement GUI code for easy use and integration. Rebuilding the plugin collection takes time and a supportive community and more infrastructure work which we are about to start now that the MVC GUI is almost ready for its prime.

tinyproxy we also have as a package, I am not completely sure about fail2ban at this point though.
