BSD --
This past February, Monowall announced the end of development as one of the most popular FreeBSD-based network/firewall focused distributions. For those still searching for a new replacement, Smallwall 1.8.2 has been released as the successor to Monowall 1.8.1.

Smallwall 1.8.2 is based on Monowall and this new release brings improvements to its web-interface, broader default NTP support, full L2TP support for more secure VPN, more secure defaults, KVM VirtIO driver support shipped soon by default, and various other updates.
