it's been exactly 6 months since the last release, but m0n0wall is not dead: beta 1.3b16 is now available. Aside from a kernel security bugfix (arc4random) and added support for Broadcom BCM5722 NICs, quite a lot has happened regarding IPv6 - thanks to Andrew White, we now have support for DHCPv6, IPv6 webGUI access, more control over RAs, initial support for secondary IP addresses on LAN/optional interfaces, and more.

Detailed change log and downloads:

Regarding future development: I still plan on releasing 1.3 anytime soon, but would like to tackle the following issues first. If you can help with any of these, please let us know.

- replacing the legacy BRIDGE with if_bridge

- improving captive portal reliability and performance (e.g. by introducing SQLite to replace the various flat text files and corresponding lockfiles)

- adding support for address/network groups in firewall rules (via ipfilter's ippool feature)

- upgrading to FreeBSD 6.4 (should be simple; no help needed with that one)

Thank you for your patience,
