Release Notes: This version adds a configuration tool, moves chains.conf, modules.conf, and run-scripts.conf, concatenates acl.conf and interfaces.conf with alfandega.conf, renames ACLs as NVLs (because of a confusion with filesystem ACLs), and includes some changes to the addons engine.
Release Notes: In this version, the blacklist now uses Sponge spyware/privacy list, an Italian language pack was added, as was pre-run scripts support, problems in the dynamic addressed startup were fixed, and the CheckSpoof add-on (RFC 3330) was upgraded.
Release Notes: Auto-update has been removed in favor of apt-get, the Log Probe add-on works fine, services_control add-on is replaced with Services add-on, there are new config options (including kernel IPv4 tuning), and an ACL implementation. The config filename for add-ons has changed. There is some code cleanup. The CPAN install and a variable substitution bug have been fixed.
Release Notes: This release fixes bugs in the iptables code as well as the remote_blacklist module. An experimental Log_Probe has also been included, Log-Control now works fine, and auto-update has been temporarily disabled.
Release Notes: This version includes Brzaillian and English support and experimental log control. firewall.conf was split to various config files under /etc/alfandega. Add-ons can now be enabled and disabled using the filesystem exec attribute, similar to cron. There was also a code cleanup.
