The developers of pfSense have just released version 2.1.3. This version addresses security fixes seen in pfSense-SA-14_05.tcp and pfSense-SA-14_06.openssl. Other fixes include optimizations in the tools repository, and minor changes in OpenVPN, Correct Captive Portal, and DynDNS.
The pfSense® project is a free, open source customized distribution of FreeBSD specifically tailored for use as a firewall and router that is entirely managed via web interface. In addition to being a powerful, flexible firewalling and routing platform, it includes a long list of related features and a package system allowing further expandability without adding bloat and potential security vulnerabilities to the base distribution.

The developers of GhostBSD have chosen to take a new direction with their desktop-oriented operating system. They have abandoned all desktop environments, including GNOME, to take on MATE. The desktop environment MATE is an offshoot of GNOME 2 featuring large improvements. You can try out MATE on GhostBSD 3.5. Version 4.0 is currently in the works and will feature MATE only.
