Is there an new link to put in "Firmware Auto Update URL" to make systems look for and find the 2.2-RC?
My 2.2-BETA didn't find this new 2.2-RC automagically.
Or do you want us to download from the mirrors and install with the "Manual Update" tab?

Alix 2D13 with internal WiFi card upgraded fine:
2.2-RC (i386)
built on Tue Dec 09 09:46:19 CST 2014
FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE

APU also upgraded fine:
2.2-RC (amd64)
built on Tue Dec 09 09:46:36 CST 2014
FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE

and now to test a few things.
But all looks good so far.

Now it's supposed to move automagically from BETA to RC

Just update my Alix 2D13 at home from 2.1.5 to 2.2-RC. Everything went well and it seems to be working fine. I had to manually reinstall the OpenVPN Client Export package because it didn't do it automatically, but no big deal.

Maybe it's a placebo effect, but the UI seems way more responsive compared to 2.1.x. I also noticed that ram utilization is a bit lower (went from 60% to 45%) running the same configuration and services. As a Alix user I appreciate that ;)

So far I like what I see and can't wait for 2.2 final to deploy at work.

It's not a placebo effect, it's the result of moving to php-fpm. Good you could feel the positive impact.

Ever since I started playing with 2.2 I have noticed the improvement in webGUI performance and memory utilization on Alix 256MB. It is so much better when events happen (WAN up/down failover on multi-WAN systems). It does not run out of memory any more for me, no more "killed: out of swap space" in the log file.
I am so tempted to install this in production now - it will fix a bunch of "glitches" due running out of memory on 256MB systems on 2.1.n.

raclure, I used http://snapshots.pfsense.org/FreeBSD_releng/10.1/i386/pfSense_RELENG_2_2/.updaters/ to update from 2.1 and it worked fine, so I can confirm that it works.

Upgrade went without any apparent issues on a Soekris Net6501 and the interface is indeed snappier. I'm also happy to see a more current FreeBSD used as base. A big thank you to everyone involved!

If anyone cares enough, the front-facing page for snapshots could be updated to
s/BETA/RC/
And maybe
s/HIGHLY EXPERIMENTAL/PRETTY GOOD REALLY/
;)

After more than a day with everything working as expected, I added basic traffic shaper using the wizard and set up the 6rd tunnel to my ISP, and after all this ram utilization never went above 45% and is currently sitting at 38% while the UI is still snappy. All this on a 256MB Alix box!

Not sure if it FreeBSD 10.1 or some kind of magic memory management trickery you guys pulled off, but I am very impressed on how smooth 2.2 runs on such low end hardware. I guess I won't need a new APU board now ;)

Great job.

I upgraded my Live system to 2.2 RC1 and so far pretty much all went OK.  (incl. auto-install packages and
existing IPSec tunnels both IPv4 and IPv6 came up OK. And also OpenVPN and IPv6overIPv4 GIF bridge
to Tunnelbroker.net)

There is only one annoying thing I have found so far and that is an auto-created
GATEWAY "TUNNELBROKER_TUNNELV4" created for my TUNNELBROKER IPv6 interface
(GIF-tunnel) even if I do not not have IPv4 enabled in that interface.
It is not possible to remove (only possible to disable)

Don't know if it is a bug or ?

Also FreeBSD 10.1 enabled the driver for my USB-NIC.  Thanks for that.  Have waited for this.  :)
