OPNsense 22.7.8 released

A belated happy patch day to everyone, This is a small maintenance and security update. You will notice that LibreSSL no longer works with FreeRADIUS software due to hiding library internals that are used by the software. Your current install will continue to work, but we would recommend switching to OpenSSL to receive FreeRADIUS updates as they become available.

Also, the infamous log_error() message is being phased out in the development version to end the questions of “Why is this log message an error?” and so with log_msg() each log line receives a more appropriate log level between error, warning and notice.

Here are the full patch notes:

  • system: add statistics tree view containing vmstat memory characteristics
