    There it is - php v8 has landed in the official reposetories of Arch Linux. It's going to be an interesting time over the next few months. I hope everything gets updated very quickly and we can jump on v.8 without having to run both at the same time / for a long time.

    OPNsense Major Release 21.1 - "Marvelous Meerkat"

    Author: Dan
    Date: 29/01/2021

    21.1, nicknamed “Marvelous Meerkat”, is the relentless continuation of open source dedication. The last 6 years were not always easy, but we are happy to be where we are now and have the community to thank for it.

    New and improved are the firewall rules and NAT categories, the traffic graphs supporting IPv6 along with a visual refresh, intrusion detection rule management by policies, an alias for MAC addresses and NAT over IPsec with all phase 2 you could ever want. Last but not least, the serial image now supports UEFI as well.

    For those wondering, the WireGuard plugin has been available since 2019 and receives continuous improvements by its maintainer and various users alike. And that is unlikey to change in the future. ;)

    I updated it via the GUI without any problems. It took about 5 minutes on a VM.
    You may need to update to v.20.7.8_4 (which also patches the sudo vulnerability!).

    Arch News - Manual pages indexing service

    Author: Dan
    Date: 20/01/2021

    We are happy to announce our newest public service: A manual pages indexing site at that publishes the man pages of all our packages and allows you to search and browse them. Check out, for example, the man page of tar. You can also find this service linked to in the sidebar as well as on every package detail page. Thanks to Wiki Admin lahwaacz for developing archmanweb for this purpose. While there are other man page indexing sites out there, it is our hope that publishing man pages matching the versions of our released packages further improves Arch accessibility and documentation.
