Please welcome "PeerGuardian Linux 2.3.0"!

One year, really? We're still alive and even have some plans for the future. The current release contains mainly old changes that accumulated the whole last year.

The default blocklist setup changed to a lighter one with Bluetack lists:
TBG has been dropped because it isn't updated on iblocklist anymore. Search the web to learn how to continue to get them. Instead we are back to some Bluetack lists, although probably with a less paranoid selection. Everybody is strongly encouraged to do his own research on the quality of the several blocklist providers. Then you can select the correct blocklists based on your own personal needs. Comments welcome!... read more

"PeerGuardian Linux 2.2.1" released

Please welcome "PeerGuardian Linux 2.2.1"!

This version adds the last feature only present in mobloquer, but not in pglgui: "whois information about blocked IPs".

Since I also fixed or workarounded all issues with older Debian and Ubuntu versions I added transitional packages for the old moblock/blockcontrol/mobloquer packages. This means the Debian/Ubuntu world now moves to pgl automatically. (Except the 2008 Ubuntu Long Term Release Hardy which I think is ok to be left behind forever ;P )... read more
