OPNsense last 21.1.9 release & OPNsense new 21.7.1 release

Author: Dan
Date: 08/08/2021

OPNsense has released 2 new updates - v21.1.9 & v21.7.1
The updates up to 21.7.1 ran without problems.

After some initial trouble with particular Intel network card instability
and two installer shortcomings this brings the first round of stable
updates, general improvements and even new features.

The OpenVPN integration required a few more changes for the 2.5 series
and Unbound would stall when the new cache restore feature was caching
an empty response.
Release Notes - 21.1.9
Release Notes - 21.7.1

Proxmox BS 2.0 released!

Author: Dan
Date: 14/7/2021

Proxmox has released a new update for their backup server - v2. It also includes Debian 11 "Bullseye".
I use it in a vm in combination with an 8tb external drive. It works great for the vms and other x86_64 and aarch64 systems, but not for ARM so far. Which is a pain because I have a few pis running.
Anyway, give it a try! The backup is really simple:

The update is also very simple. Just follow the link:

Author: Dan
Date: 11/07/2021

OPNsense has released a new update - v21.1.8.
As usual on my side, the update went through without a hitch.

The code moves to PHP 7.4 as previously announced. Shipped alongside are a few updates and fixes that still make sense for the 21.1 series.
