DragonFly 4.2.3 released

There was a newer release of OpenSSL (1.0.1p) last week, so there’s a new revision of the DragonFly release – 4.2.3.  There’s little major change other than the security fix for OpenSSL.
Those readers who can count past 2 may notice that there wasn’t a 4.2.2.  We went straight from 4.2.1 to 4.2.3.   That’s my fault.  I screwed up tagging and Git doesn’t like repeated, deleted tags.

OPNsense 15.7.3 Released

The full list of changes are as follows:
  • php56 5.6.11 [1], pkg 1.5.5 [2], ca_root_nss 3.19.2, phalcon 2.0.5 [3], isc-dhcp42-server 4.2.8_1 [4]
  • backup: fix infinite reboot loop on interface mismatch
  • firmware: show locally installed packages
  • firmware: reboot dialog now responsively redirects when the system is back up
  • dashboard: upgrade link now directly launches into the firmware upgrade
  • dashboard: added a system log widget (contributed by Sascha Linke)
  • languages: merged German translation progress (contributed by Fabian Franz)
  • xmlrpc: fix sync of static routes
  • bogons: fix overwrite-on-upgrade bug
