Screen Shots of interest (Dam it !!!  Is that a scoop ???)  v18 menu "Rules and Policies" that replaces the menu "Firewall":

Here I noticed three new tabs: "Firewall Rules", "NAT Rules", and "SSL/TLS Inspection rules".  "Disable Rule" and "Delete Rule" are groupable and relocated.  Also note the disabled "Drop All" I was told by Sophos techs not to ever do.  Never knew why.  Many filtering options.

 

 

You guys noticed "Create linked NAT rule", "Web Filtering", "Configure...Heartbeat" ?  Actualy, the "Advanced  Section" was replaced entirely.  "Nat & Routing" is gone essentialy because NAT is now decoupled.
