Latest beta snapshot:
Development is currently being done on a FreeBSD 8.3 based version of m0n0wall that brings
better support for current hardware (especially new WLAN and Ethernet controllers), as well
as massive improvements to the IPv6 support.
Snapshots are built whenever there is a commit to the repository.
The version number format is 1.8.1bXXX, where XXX = revision of the repository that the image was built from.

Remember that snapshots/betas may contain serious bugs and are not intended for use in sensitive production environments.
128 MB RAM or more are required (systems with 64 MB will not work reliably with the new version anymore).
