New XFwall Firewall ver 1.3-15st now has a Status Monitor

XFwall 1.3-15st now has a new feature: A Command Status Monitor Window.

It optionally shows up whenever you Run, Rebuild or Stop the firewall showing what is going on behind the scenes for debugging purposes.

The ideia is to have a way to know what is happening in the background when XFwall issues a command line to the bash prompt.
