fail2ban-0.7.7 released

I'm proud to announce the release of the version 0.7.7 of Fail2ban, the first and hopefully the only release candidate. There is almost no bug fixes in this release. Here is a short summary of the changes:

1) fail2ban-regex has been completely rewritten and can now accept both log file and filter file. This should help testing regular expressions.
2) Cacti template and script in order to graph failed and banned hits.
3) some new filter and action scripts.
4) fail2ban-client status <jail> now display the currently banned IP addresses.

The complete list of changes is available in the CHANGELOG.

Fail2ban has a new domain name. You can now find the wiki, nightly snapshots, downloads at

Please, do not hesitate to contribute, discuss or edit the wiki. The best way to see what changed on the wiki is to look at:

Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this release.
