Release of nf-hipac v0.9.0

During the development of version 0.9.0 everything was ported to Linux kernel 2.6 and large parts of the kernel code have been rewritten. The kernel patch is now fairly non-intrusive: it only adds one simple function to ip_tables.c. The rest of the patch introduces new files to the kernel. The new release fixes all known bugs and also introduces some new features.

Performance test results available

We now have the results of some basic performance tests available on our web page. The test compares the performance of the iptables filter table to the performance of nf-hipac. Results are pretty impressive :-)
