SmoothWall GPL 2.0 beta5 Released

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

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
