pfSense software version 2.4.2 release

We are excited to announce the release of pfSense® software version 2.4.2, now available for new installations and upgrades!

pfSense 2.4.2-RELEASE updates and installation images are available now!

 2.4.2 Release

pfSense software version 2.3.5 release

pfSense® software version 2.3.5 is now available for upgrades!

As we have promised, will will continue to deliver security and stability fixes to the pfSense 2.3.x line even after we have released pfSense 2.4.0, since i386 and NanoBSD were deprecated in pfSense 2.4.0. These updates will continue for a minimum of one year after the pfSense 2.4.0 release date, which means they will continue through at least October 2018.

2.3.5 Release

Goodbye to the SG-2440

It's time to phase out the SG-2440. This has been our most popular system, but it is now End of Sale. We suggest offering the SG-3100 in place of the SG-2440 going forward.

Note: We will maintain stock of SG-2440 systems for RMA purposes.

The XG-1541 now with more storage space

As of November 3, 2017, all XG-1541s will be shipping with a 256 GB m.2 SATA drive, rather than a 150 GB 2.5" SSD. RAID 1 is still optional and will be created using dual 150 GB 2.5" SSDs.

The pricing of the XG-1541 will not be affected by this upgrade.

XG-1541 Details


Netgate will have a tradeshow booth at Amazon's big end-of-year show AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas from November 27 to December 1. We're in booth #1433 in Hall C of the Venetian, so stop by to chat, pick up swag and chat about our software roadmap. 

We will be announcing a new cloud-based software platform that will start on AWS but evolve into a highspeed hardware-based routing platform.
