  • Just stopping by to say thank you for pfsense 2.1 release - have been following the dev snapshots and - for me - the proper release firmware installed without a hitch. THANK YOU to devs, coders, testers, all involved!!

    Yeah thanks guys..  And curious about the gold subscription, any chance for say a silver or bronze price point for us poor/cheap bastards that love our pfsense and wouldn't mind throwing a few bucks towards the project.  And don't really have need for a cloud backup or such.

    Have a hard time justify a C note to say the wife ;)  And wouldn't mind access to the pdf..

    Maybe even a pewter level? ;)

    I don't know about you but I'll be buying the book as soon as it's available. I like having hard copy of things like that, however having it in searchable pdf form is very useful. I'm not sure what the outcome was but there was discussion of some combo book/pdf purchase. Contributing to the project that way seems like pewter level.  ;)

    Buying the book is still a good way to contribute, especially for those who can't swing the Gold subscription or full support.

    And if someone wants to contribute more, they can always donate directly to the project and get a warm fuzzy that way (link is in my sig)

    I bought the first edition. I will buy 2.1 book for sure .  :)
    Gold subscription, maybe next year or as soon as possible.
    Thank you very much!



  • Great work! Time to get that ipv6 subnet from Sixxs  :)

    Any ETA on when the new book will be available for purchase ? Preferably hardcopy, but e-book would work too.

    It will be a couple months but not much longer now. The bulk of the work has been done, but there is still some editing/review to do and some various publishing details to work out.



  • Thanks for the continued work pfSense Team!!!! I am happy to see the gold subscription that includes offsite backup that is more in my price range than the other options. I didn't hesitate to get it since pfSense rocks and I want to see it continue to get better!

    Now off to upgrade :-D



  • Thank you so much! Now I can use our IPv6 address pool :)

    One small complaint: The VMware Appliance (*.ova) is no longer available on the download pages. In late August ova was available on the snapshot pages. But lately it was gone, and now also on the RELEASE download. Perhaps the script to make it - has had some bug introduced?



  • Congrats on the release of 2.1.  I just upgraded my home system, and it seems to have improved some things.

    Also, you might want to update the News part on the Forum to state 2.1 has been released, and not 2.0.3.  Plus, on the regular www.pfsense.com site you might want to announce it.

    Regards.

    This has been fixed.

    The Project News Feed section of http://www.pfsense.org/ is still old news.

    Edit/update: Now the Project News Feed is happily up-to-date.




  • awesome work! Its been working so much better than 2.0.3 even in the RC builds. Off to build my 2.1 Release Xen kernel :D

    p.s. also looking forward to testing pfsense 2.2, FreeBSD 10 just released an Alpha!



  • Just upgraded. Fantastic work & congratulations to all who worked hard to make it happen. I've been testing 2.1RC for more than 2 months, and it was rock solid to begin with. Looking forward to testing 2.2.



  • Hi Guys.

    Regards from Mexico.  PFSense is realy an amazing solution.

    I already bought the printed version of the book from amazon, and i have to tell that is very good material to read. There is a second edition ?

    Regards.



  • If you buy the Gold subscription, then you will get a softcopy of the draft pfSense 2.1 book, which describes all the features in 2.1. At some time, when the draft reviewing is finished, the official version will be published, and you can get that with a Gold subscription, or separately.



  • Thanks for all the work you've done on this tremendous piece of software..
    Just made a small donation too :)



  • Awesome work guys!  I've been using pfSense for about 3 years now and never looked back.  Just bought the gold subscription to help out.
