2.4.4-p3 New Features and Changes¶
pfSense® software version 2.4.4-p3 addresses security and other issues found in 2.4.4-p2.
The upcoming pfSense release version 2.5.0 deprecates the built-in load balancer, and all related code has been removed as it is not compatible with FreeBSD 12. Plan migrations to alternate solutions such as the HAProxy package now.
