Firewall Builder 4.1.2 released

We are happy to announce that we released Firewall Builder V4.1.2 this morning. This release includes a few bug fixes and many usability enhancements. After conducting several usability tests with new users we realized that some concepts and areas of the application can be challenging for new users who are trying to get started. To help new users we have added more visual cues and navigation aids in the GUI. We also simplified the entry fields in several wizards to help make it easier to create certain types of new objects.

Existing Firewall Builder users who have enabled "tooltips" in their Preferences settings under the Objects tab will see additional tooltips when editing firewall policies and other areas. If you haven't enabled tooltips, which were disabled by default on all versions before V4.1.2, then you won't see any of these new tips.
