19.7 “Jazzy Jaguar” Series

For four and a half years now, OPNsense is driving innovation through modularising and hardening the open source firewall, with simple and reliable firmware upgrades, multi-language support, HardenedBSD security, fast adoption of upstream software updates as well as clear and stable 2-Clause BSD licensing.

19.7, nicknamed “Jazzy Jaguar”, embodies an iteration of what should be considered enjoyable user experience for firewalls in general: improved statistics and visibility of rules, reliable and consistent live logging and alias utility improvements. Apart from the usual upgrades of third party software to up-to-date releases, OPNsense now also offers built-in remote system logging through Syslog-ng, route-based IPsec, updated translations with Spanish as a brand new and already fully translated language and newer Netmap code with VirtIO, VLAN child and vmxnet support.

Last but not least we would like to thank m.a.x. it for their sponsorship of the default gateway priority switching feature and their continued work of writing and maintaining plenty of community plugins. This time around, Maltrail, Netdata and WireGuard VPN have been freshly added to the mix.

Download links, an installation guide [1] and the checksums for the images can be found below as well.

Included is the latest Suricata 5.0.0 release in the development version. That means later this November we will releasing version 5 to the production version as we finish up tweaking the integration and maybe pick up 5.0.1 as it becomes available.

LDAP TLS connectivity is now integrated into the system trust store, which ensures that all required root and intermediate certificates will be seen by the connection setup when they have been added to the authorities section.

19.7 (July 17, 2019)

For four and a half years now, OPNsense is driving innovation through modularising and hardening the open source firewall, with simple and reliable firmware upgrades, multi-language support, HardenedBSD security, fast adoption of upstream software updates as well as clear and stable 2-Clause BSD licensing.

19.7, nicknamed “Jazzy Jaguar”, embodies an iteration of what should be considered enjoyable user experience for firewalls in general: improved statistics and visibility of rules, reliable and consistent live logging and alias utility improvements. Apart from the usual upgrades of third party software to up-to-date releases, OPNsense now also offers built-in remote system logging through Syslog-ng, route-based IPsec, updated translations with Spanish as a brand new and already fully translated language and newer Netmap code with VirtIO, VLAN child and vmxnet support.

Last but not least we would like to thank m.a.x. it for their sponsorship of the default gateway priority switching feature and their continued work of writing and maintaining plenty of community plugins. This time around, Maltrail, Netdata and WireGuard VPN have been freshly added to the mix.

  • src: import tzdata 2019b

  • ports: ca_root_nss 3.45

  • ports: filterlog 0.3 will not print to console and lowercase IPv6 protocol output

  • ports: postfix update is now non-interactive to prevent stalls

  • ports: rrdtool 1.7.2 [7]

Known issues and limitations:

  • Web proxy squid update from version 3 to 4 breaks the cache database. To repair go to “Services: Web Proxy: Administration” tab “Support” and click “Reset”.

  • Web proxy login privilege is no longer available. Access may be restricted by a group selector instead.

  • Nano images require a reinstall using the latest image to avoid inode shortage which makes the system appear to run out of space during recent 19.1.x updates.

  • OpenVPN no longer supports listening on gateway groups. Use localhost paired with port forwards instead.

19.7.r1 (July 09, 2019)

For four and a half years now, OPNsense is driving innovation through modularising and hardening the open source firewall, with simple and reliable firmware upgrades, multi-language support, HardenedBSD security, fast adoption of upstream software updates as well as clear and stable 2-Clause BSD licensing.

We thank all of you for helping test, shape and contribute to the project! We know it would not be the same without you.

Download links, an installation guide [1] and the checksums for the images can be found below as well.
