This is great news. For those of us that use m0n0wall for mission
critical firewalls, the time and effort to build a stable release is
more than greatly appreciated. It may be the end of the 4.X FreeBSD
series, but being it's been so rock solid for me, things can only get
better from here. I look forward to the FreeBSD 6.X series, as much as I
love to buy $10 computers and turn them into rock solid
firewalls/routers with m0n0wall it's time to move on. But that certainly
doesn't mean the 4.X series of m0n0wall won't be useful for years to
come, it's still the best firewall/router software that I've ever had
the pleasure of working with.
Keep up the great work Manuel and all the others that put hard work and
time into this great project! We all support you!
