Release Notes: This release switches to Linux kernel 2.4 and from an old libc5 to the new uclibc, which is targeted for embedded systems. Windows users will benefit from the new graphical build frontend. The status Web frontend has received a major overhaul and now has a modern CSS layout. The SSH-package now includes dropbear to support SSH2. fli4l can now be configured to act as an OpenVPN server. DynDNS is now part of the fli4l core packages.

Release Notes: The most visible change of this release is the reworked Web interface. Most user interfaces (Win-IMONC, administration menu, Web interface) are now available in German, English, French, and Dutch. There now is a new package to run fli4l inside a Xen domain. Some minor software updates include uClibc 0.9.28 (with LFS), a kernel with IPv6 support, dnsmasq 2.23, chrony 2.0.2, syslinux 3.11, ipppd 3.7 (mschap-support works), and OpenVPN 2.0.5. The wlan package now has some WPA2-enabled drivers, the rt2500 driver, and a new version of hostap (0.3.9).

Release Notes: The kernel is now patched with some parts of grsecurity. More flexible boot handling was added, which should make it possible to support more different boot media. Routers can be switched off automatically if APM is supported. The packet filter has a more flexible configuration. A new time server package using chrony was added. Support for Fritz!Card DSL USB, Fritz!X USB, and Fritz!Card USB was added. There are software updates and several bugfixes.

Release Notes: Updated to Kernel 2.4.22, uClibc 0.9.20, BusyBox 1.0-pre3, gtk-imonc 0.6, and Privoxy 3.0.2. PPPoE in the kernel is now the default. You can use active-filter for ISDN. There are several minor bugfixes and changes.

Release Notes: You can now specify MX entrys in the nameserver configuration. The packet filter config is much-improved, and you can also switch to an alternate configuration scheme for enhanced packet filter configuration. Portforwarding now works with whitelists and you can forward a whole protocol (e.g., GRE). You can now do DSL with the Fritz!DSL from AVM and use the in-kernel PPPoE to reduce your CPU load. It is now also possible to install and boot on DiscOnChip and USB-Memory-Sticks. Included in the ISDN package is the CAPI for ISDN cards from AVM.

Release Notes: This release has changed to Linux kernel 2.4.20 and from ipchains to iptables. An overflow system has been built for more than 4GB traffic in imond. The ramdisk filesystem has been changed to minix to save space. Some NIC drivers have been added, including Gigabit ethernet. There is a security fix for the httpd. The reconnect-after-forced-disconnect problem for PPTP has been resolved. An active filter for PPPoE and PPTP has been added. There are some minor bugfixes.

Release Notes: This release has moved from libc5 to uclibc. Check files are more flexible. Conversion of the documentation to TeX has begun. There is better PCMCIA and WLAN support. Installation on SCSI is possible.

No changes have been submitted for this release.

Release Notes: This release uses kernel 2.2.19, pppoe V3.2, and syslinux 1.63. The distribution is now modular. Forbidden-domains are now possible with the DNS-server. Multiple destinations/loghosts are now possible with syslog. The telnet port is now configurable. Internal forwarding of 137:139 can now be allowed or denied. Input via serial console is supported. The FTP-MASQ ports are now configurable. Support for harddisks and compact flash was improved, and a setup utility was added. Some small improvements and bugfixes were made.

Release Notes: This release adds a DHCP server, DSL-circuit-emulation, IPSEC-modules ipsec and pptp, IPX-routing (EXPERIMENTAL), PCMCIA-support (EXPERIMENTAL), PPTP for using DSL in Austria (EXPERIMENTAL), SSH login, a voicebox "vbox", a boot diskette which uses vfat to save data permanently, imond (additional logging of transmitted amounts of data), a mini-Webserver for ISDN- and DSL-monitoring, a new LCD-display-program with a flexible output format, support for 1680kb-floppies, forwarding of syslog-messages to a log-host, controlling/monitoring of DSL using imond/imonc, execution of commands/procedures by incoming call (for example: a router establishes the Internet connection), improved configuration of further routers in same network, ximonc (a graphical interface to use with X), use of klogd to log kernel messages with syslog, and parallel use of ISDN- and DSL-circuits. It is now possible to connect from outside the local LAN (if allowed), to save the imond/telmond logfiles on a floppy, and to show the online/offline state using an LED.
