Release Notes: This release features translation updates, XDCMP updates, adds Microsoft Media Player, Jabber over SSL, Bittorrent, rsync, distcc, and gkrellm protocols, fixes the NTP protocol, adds a PGP key server, and is updated to work with Linux 2.6 kernels.
Release Notes: This release supports zones and many extra protocols, iptables, KDE3, rate limited logging, connection tracking, user defined protocols, the import and export of scripts, DHCP support, and router configuration. A small bug that was stopping Guarddog from compiling on Qt2 was fixed, along with a bug in the kernel detection script. The manual has been reviewed and edited.
Release Notes: There is a small fix to Windows Networking (NETBIOS). Kerberos, klogin, kshell, NIS, IMAPS, POP3S, and ISAKMP have been added. It now correctly detects which filter system is being using on 2.5 kernels.
Release Notes: Support for recent autoconf versions, no longer requiring that packets creating a NEW tracked connection have their SYN bits set, and new CDDB, MSN Messenger, VNC, and PPTP support.
Release Notes: This release doesn't try to enforce the Strong ES model. A nasty flaw in the way UDP reply packets were handled has been fixed. Control over TCP timestamps and support for Telstra's BigPond Cable have been added. The GUI layout on the Protocol tab has been changed. There are NETBIOS fixes.
