Well, besides the huge amount of time Manual has and will need to invest,  I
think that depends strongly on how the community is willing to:

- test the beta
- find problems and report them
- give more info when needed on the problem (debugging)
- help Manuel and all the other developers fix the problems by contributing

So people, you want this to be stable ? install, try, play , stress, test,
mangle and use the beta, en report it back ! :)

Regards, Jurgen

Onderwerp: 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,
