On the latest snapshot, VLAN interfaces do not function on SG-1000 units unless the parent NIC is set promiscuous (manually with @ifconfig cpsw0 promisc) or by running a program that puts the interface in promisc mode)

It was working on snapshots a few days prior. Latest snapshot is from the 10th, which is also a few days behind.

Upgraded to latest release candidate
2.4.0-RC (arm)
built on Thu Oct 05 21:17:11 CDT 2017
FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE-p1

And this seems to have caused the issue again on my SG-1000

Has this issue been resolved? I have the same problem in the latest stable version of my SG-1000:

2.4.3-RELEASE-p1 (arm)
built on Thu May 10 15:59:52 CDT 2018
FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE-p10

This specific issue was resolved over a year ago. If you are having an issue, it's not likely to be this problem.

Please post on the forum or pfSense subreddit with more detail.

After forcing promisc on cpsw1 vlan routing starts working so it seems the same as the issue from the ticket.
I can provide more details but you have tell what exactly you need.
