The first release candidate is now available for testing of the OPNsense 19.1 FreeBSD-based firewall operating system forked from m0n0wall when it closed up shop four years ago.

For end-users to note there is also better IPV6 support and proxy add WPAD support.

Those interested in OPNsense for networking/firewall OS deployments can find out more details on the pending 19.1 release via today's RC1 announcement. The stable OPNsense 19.1 release is expected to be out before the end of January.
