PfSense-repo upgraded: 2.4.0 -> 2.4.0_1
today when checking my logs on pfSense 2.4.0 I found this message:
pfSense-repo upgraded: 2.4.0 -> 2.4.0_1
What does that mean exactly? I see no upgrade available. Have some packages been upgraded?
It means the repository metadata was updated, it's what keeps track of how your update branches work under System > Update, Update Settings tab.
In this case, it means we changed the repository data such that if you select "Development Snapshots" you can move to 2.4.1 snapshots. We usually keep that pointed at the same target as stable for a while post-release, but in this case we're having a very short dev cycle for 2.4.1 so we are switching it back sooner.
