Howdy partners,

While we do hope everyone is enjoying their summer vacation
we’re rolling out a larger update due to multiple issues with
FreeBSD and third party programs. We also have a feature that
our community has been yearning for: the transparent proxy!

This time around, we took extra care with our development
version and let features simmer there until they are fully
ready to be rolled out. We already have VPN configuration
improvements and firmware upgrade eye candy staged in the
current development package. Join our forum to find out more:
