    We are happy to announce that V4.1 in now released! You can download it from our website here:

    http://www.fwbuilder.org/4.0/docs/firewall_builder_packages.html

    V4.1 includes new enhancements and features including:

    • Support for Address Table objects that use the iptables ipset module

    • New toolbar shortcut to view complete generated firewall configuration files in the GUI

    • New toolbar shortcut to view complete generated firewall configuration files in the GUI

    • Shortcut buttons in the main window to help new users get started more easily

    • Updated many dialog window sizes to work better for users with smaller displays (1024x768)

    Users requested the iptables ipset module support for dynamic environments where existing firewall rules need to be updated with a new object to match (IP address or IP subnet). IP sets provide an efficient way to do this without requiring a reload of your iptables rules.

    Want to know what your configuration will look like? The "inspect" function allows you to preview your configuration files in the Firewall Builder GUI before you deploy them to your firewalls.

    Have suggestions for features you would like us to add? Leave us a comment and we'll consider it for future releases.

    Vadim and Mike
