Dear fellow firewall enthusiasts,

today’s update includes a shiny new rewrite of the traffic
shaper functionality for dummynet, another completed chapter
in the ongoing quest for standardisation towards FreeBSD.
The other gem is the first batch of translations for Simplified
Chinese kindly provided by two of our enthusiastic users from
China.  We ask for you to try both features and let us know
about limitations and issues through any of the usual channels.
We appreciate likes and don’t-likes alike.  :)

Security-wise, it has been rather quiet.  Enjoy it while it
lasts.  Here are the full patch notes:

o notable ports upgrades: pcre 8.37, pkg 1.5.3,
	ca_root_nss 3.19.1
o aliases: fix javascript error that prevented aliases
	from woking
o traffic shaper: rewrote the feature using standard
	components on top of the new MVC framework/API
	(see Firewall: Traffic Shaper)
o system: enabled first few hundred translations of
	Simplified Chinese to help the community to
	progress and review said translation
	(see System: Settings: General)
o vpn: all GUI files underwent a thorough coding
	style refresh
o firmware: prevent spurious “Module already loaded”
	errors while upgrading PHP packages

The packages for OpenSSL and LibreSSL are up and can be
applied via the GUI or console firmware upgrade.

Stay safe,
Your OPNsense team
