What are your thoughts on this, good|bad? Giving the source a quick glance it sounds that it’s being pushed back a version, but maybe I’m reading it wrong?

I think the community having there small freakout played a small role but overall I think they found some other way to implement what they wanted to accomplish without using restconf.

Is pfsense not specifically based on nanobsd anymore, and is instead based on its more complete self freebsd? Because in the text of the article it says freebsd.

I thought it was always based on FreeBSD.

Interesting they’re deprecating relayd. I think that’s what openbsd uses as a web server instead of apache or nginx. Based on that, I always assumed it was secure and robust… although I’m sure much less feature-rich than HA-Proxy.

From what I understand, nanobsd is freebsd, but its more minimal and is mostly in a read only state and is geared towards internet appliances with low system resources. Nanobsd images are created thru freebsd.
