See my previous answer in this thread:
Not too much longer now. It would have been out already but we found a handful of items to fix during our testing yesterday and we're doing a new round of testing today, so far so good. If no show-stoppers turn up, it'll be out within the next 24 hours, give or take. We'll have to sync up the mirrors first, make sure all of the release notes are up-to-date, and a list of other things that happen after we confirm the release images are good.

Really Soon Now.

Nice one and congrats !

Will the version 2.2-XX be based on the current master of git (the one with tons of pull request that haven't been put on the 2.1 branch) ?

Release?

But what about the enless calls for added features and packages?

I was hoping to get the jedi light sabre add on package integrated so I can use pfsense for home defence!   :(

Don't worry, there's an even BETTER package in the works: the TF2 Sentry Gun brains are being ported from Raspbian to pfSense!  What, don't you believe me?

And MAJOR CONGRATS to Chris and his team!!  WOOHOO!   But, um, BTW...you DID find the FreeBSD NSA backdoor and removed it, right?

NSA has a back door in my FreeBSD?  That would suck...    :-\
They already have the key to my front door :-X  :-X  :-X

Which has me thinking...   The robotic sentry control package would be nice  :P
Maybe you can put in the good word and get it rolled in or added as a package option before the release is released?
You have 1 hour...  GO!

Yes, the current master/HEAD branch is what will eventually become 2.2 on a FreeBSD 10.x base.

Perhaps the pfSense developers found one of the NSA backdoors and are doing a last-minute patch   :o

Downloads page won't load. Not sure if good sign or random downtime. I will stay optimistic.

LOL I confess that thought crossed my mind too. What do you do if a government person comes to your door and asks you to work with them? And they remind you the IRS is their "pit bull".
