For over 5 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.
20.1, nicknamed "Keen Kingfisher", is a subtle improvement on sustainable firewall experience. This release adds VXLAN and additional loopback device support, IPsec public key authentication and elliptic curve TLS certificate creation amongst others. Third party software has been updated to their latest versions. The logging frontend was rewritten for MVC with seamless API support. On the far side the documentation increased in quality as well as quantity and now presents itself in a familiar menu layout.
Download links, an installation guide and the checksums for the images can be found below as well.
These are the most prominent changes since version 19.7:
o Captive portal performance improvements o IPsec public key authentication support o Elliptic curve TLS certificate creation o CARP service demotion hook o VXLAN device support o Loopback device support o Extended firmware health audit checks o Support direction and non-quick on interface rules o Logging frontend migrated to MVC / API o PSR 12 coding style o Documentation for all core components o Python 3.7 is now the default Python version o LibreSSL 3.0 and OpenSSL 1.1.1 o Google Backup API 2.4 o jQuery 3.4.1
