We are pleased to announce the release of SmoothWall GPL 2.0 beta 5, codename "Orient".
There have been quite a few changes since beta 4, spread of the course over the last couple of months, including:
- 2.4.21 kernel
- NTP time sync
- timezone now set in the UI not in the setup program
- updates lists can now be retrieved through a (passwordless) http proxy
- tweaks to the UI
- several other updates and bug fixes.
You can download the ISO and sourcekit from http://smoothwall.org/get/
In addition to the beta5 release, today we unveil our Community Forum site. Here you'll get SmoothWall GPL project announcements, a platform to have project-related discussion and somewhere to help each other out with the software. The forum will not be a place to argue or name-call, and we expect a certain level of decorum and politeness when you post
Be aware that there may still be changes to the look-and-feel, and the categories on the forum site over the coming weeks.
The forums can be found at http://smoothwall.org/interact/
