Additionally, this release introduces a new PANIC mode which is now handled entirely by FireHOL, has better handling of the MIRROR target, has wider support for SNMPTRAP and SYSLOG, a definition for the SOCKS service, and better interoperability with various Linux distributions (e.g., Debian).

Several minor issues were fixed, providing better NAT support for all services, handling for external pager commands, kernel config parsing, a config wizard, etc.
