We are happy to announce that V4.1 is ready for beta testing. You can
download the Beta test release for V4.1 from our nightly builds
folder, just select the build with the highest release number (3173
right now) to get the latest. Or if you use the Firewall Builder rpm
and deb repositories, the "testing" repository is now serving the
latest V4.1 beta build as well.
While this release has been tested and we believe it is stable, you
should test it prior to using it in production. If you find a bug, or
if you have a suggestion on how we can improve something, please open
a ticket in our SourceForge project:
What's new in V4.1?
There are several new features in this version including:
* Support for iptables ipset module (provides a dynamic group function
in memory) - requires ipset module
* New function and toolbar shortcut to view complete generated
firewall script in a viewer window
* Shortcut buttons in the main window to help new users get started
* Updated many dialog window sizes and layouts to work better for
users with smaller displays (1024x768)
* Added a new mode for stopping the firewall script called 'block'
There are also a number of smaller enhancements and bug fixes
included. You can find a complete list of all the updates in the V4.1
Beta release note on our website:
If you are a licensed user, V4.1 will be a free upgrade for users that
have a valid V4.0 license. We plan to officially release V4.1 in a
few weeks once we are confident there are no major issues. As always
please let us know what you think and if there are ways that we can
improve Firewall Builder.
