Welcome everyone,

It is time for the next major iteration in open-source security!  After
6 months and 20 minor releases we hereby declare the general availability
of OPNsense 16.7, nick-named "Dancing Dolphin".  The highlights of this
major release include:

o Suricata 3.1.1 with Intel Hyperscan support
o NetFlow-based reporting and export
o Traffic shaping using CoDel / FQ-CoDel
o Two-factor authentication based on RFC 6238 (TOTP)
o HTTPS and ICAP support in the proxy server
o FreeBSD 10.3 with full integration of HardenedBSD ASLR
o UEFI boot and installation modes
o Substantial updates to our language packs: Japanese,
  Russian, German, French, Chinese

We thank all contributors, testers and users for their relentless support
and invaluable feedback.  The release candidate phase has been the most
fun we have had so far.  :)

Attention: An incompatibility in Chrome may prevent the firmware update
from running.  Try a different browser to upgrade to 16.7 where a
workaround has been added to avoid the problem in the future.
