Just FYI,

PFSense officially released 2.4.0 on October 10th. My attempt to upgrade went real bad and put my firewall into a CRASH and reboot loop. Several hours later I determined that the problem was the LightSquid addon. Had to do a fresh install and restore my configuration backup to recover. About 3 hours wasted. I am beginning to really dislike updates. Anyway, 2.4.0 is up and running with all of my addons. Just beware of possible problems when you decide to upgrade.

Bob

Thank you Bob.

I have had a few PFSense updates cause upheavals. I did go on the PFSense forum to vent at those times. One update did not work with my log caching in memory; well it just would have issues.

Recently updates have been no issues.

Reading your post though now has me going to the PFSense forum for a look see.

I did not get an email tickle for the new update for 2.4.0 release on October 10, 2017.

I looked just now and see the update.

Updated PFSense this afternoon, 18th of October at around 1500c time.


>>> Updating repositories metadata...
pkg-static: Warning: Major OS version upgrade detected. Running "pkg-static install -f pkg" recommended
Updating pfSense-core repository catalogue...
pfSense-core repository is up to date.
Updating pfSense repository catalogue...
done.
pfSense repository is up to date.
All repositories are up to date.
>>> Locking package pkg... done.
2.4.0 version of pfSense is available

The process will require 34 MiB more space.
124 MiB to be downloaded.

System update failed!

Will try again.

Did not try again after looking at the console.

Went downstairs to the "server room" to look at the console. It was still updating and downloading files. It rebooted then removed and reinstalled plugins.

All is well now.

The main GUI page appears a bit different / login is different / looks like a bunch of changes with the PFsense 2.4 update.

Looked at the plugins and noticed it was still showing old PFBlocker and a tickle about updating to new PFBlocker which I did.

>>> Upgrading pfSense-pkg-pfBlockerNG...
Updating pfSense-core repository catalogue...
pfSense-core repository is up to date.
Updating pfSense repository catalogue...
pfSense repository is up to date.
All repositories are up to date.
The following 1 package(s) will be affected (of 0 checked):

Installed packages to be UPGRADED:
pfSense-pkg-pfBlockerNG: 2.1.1_11 -> 2.1.2 [pfSense]

Number of packages to be upgraded: 1

Rest of the plugins appear to be working fine. So it was probably some goofy php error relating to the GUI. I have historically also updated via the console rather that the GUI. (a couple of times). I did do a manual backup before starting.

Main (Dashboard) page is showing this now which I will probably close. Netgate is putting it's teeth in place prominently.

Login prompt looks like this now with upgrade to PFSense 2.4

Everything else looks the same.

Did not really have any issues other than in the GUI such that update was painless.

After all was done posted my experience on the PFSense forum.

One issue that I have seen reported relates to DNS Resolver and a slow down of upload speeds.

I do not think that this is an issue with the update rather it is an issue with DNS Resolver as I changed my IP about a month ago and my upload speeds slowed down to some 250k.
I would reboot the modem and the upload speeds would be ok for a day or so then drop back down to 250k.

Calling CC they told me that my modem checked out fine.

My modem upload speeds have been good now for over a week with old version of PFSense and new version of PFSense.

Here force a change in my internet address about once every 3-4 months.

Reading some on the forums noticed that many issues were caused relating to a BSD OS update. Recently there was another update:

2.4.1-RELEASE (amd64)
built on Sun Oct 22 17:26:33 CDT 2017
FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE-p2
The system is on the latest version.

It also indicates AES-NI CPU Crypto on CPU.

Beta updates now are at 2.4.4.

Plus now a disclaimer pops up with first time use which I have never seen before.

Here still waiting on a Skylake based micro router motherboard.

Meanwhile updating current PFSense box using a BCM motherboard to a newer BCM mITX mother board using a Haswell chip set (similiar to Homeseer Pro today)

Looks to me like this disclaimer is for folks selling devices with PFSense installed.
