Thats great news Manuel ! Gonna test it on wrap and PC Monday :)

And your right, lets work to a stable set of the current feature set before
even considering new featurs. The only exception on my account would be the
openvpn :)

Subject: [m0n0wall] Beta 1.3b1 released

Hello everyone,

the long wait is over - the first FreeBSD 6.x-based version of m0n0wall,
1.3b1, is ready! After the contest idea proved not to be the right way to
get m0n0wall updated, I decided to do it myself, taking Dinesh Nair's
initial efforts as a starting point - the focus was clearly on making
everything work and not on adding new features, but still, we can already
enjoy some of the improvements that 6.x brings. Here's what's new:

- changed base system to FreeBSD 6.2-RC1 -> better support for new hardware,
Ethernet NICs, etc.

- Atheros wireless cards are finally supported -> wireless-related webGUI
pages have been improved

- generic-pc-cdrom: configuration may now also be stored on an USB memory
stick (booting m0n0wall (generic-pc) from USB memory sticks should now also
work on most PCs)

I've put a lot of work into making sure that everything works and behaves as
in 1.22/1.23b1, and most features have already been tested, but still - this
is a beta version, and some things might not yet work as intended. Back up
your configuration file first, just to be safe. It is possible to upgrade to
1.3b1 from 1.2 and up via the webGUI. Downgrades from 1.3b1 to 1.2x should
also work fine.

Detailed change log and downloads:


Work on the new concept for m0n0wall is also going well, and with any luck,
a proof-of-concept implementation will be available in February.

Have fun,
