    Release Notes: Now with IPv6 support. This is preliminary, and requires underlying tools to support IPv6.

      Release Notes: This release fixed a failure to read time values on certain systems that occurred because Python strptime could not read times written by strftime on the same system. The solution was to remove the use of strptime from blockhosts.py.

          Release Notes: Detection of duplicate log messages was fixed, since it used to mask multiple login failures for sshd.

            Release Notes: iptables is now updated by inserting blockhosts blocking rules at the beginning of the chain instead of at the end. This will allow servers with default policy of both DROP or ACCEPT to make use of blockhosts. Both INPUT and FORWARD chains will now block traffic from rogue IP hosts.

              Release Notes: The log match rules were updated to accept lines without a colon (:) after the [pid]. This is seen in some Debian and Ubuntu installs, at least.

                Release Notes: The keywords {LOG_PREFIX{service-name}} and {HOST_IP} were added to make it easier to write patterns to scan log files. Support for Source Mage Linux logs was also added.

                  Release Notes: Logging and mail notification were improved. Logwatch scripts are now included to provide a summary of blockhosts activity. Mail can now be set to send only if there are errors or warnings or notice level messages.

                      Release Notes: An ipblock option replaces the old iptables/iproute options, with the additional ability to accept a full pathname for iptables/ip route commands. Blockfile IP addresses with time strings that Python fails to parse are now handled by changing the time of IP address access to now, instead of exiting.
