Date: Monday 23rd March 2009 14:28:32 UTC (over 9 years ago)
The netfilter coreteam presents: iptables version 1.4.3 the iptables release for the 2.6.29 kernel. It has been some time since the last release and we've had a lot of changes all over the place. Besides the usual fixes and cleanups, we have: - numerous documentation updates from Jan Engelhardt and others - a set of changes to move some of the iptables functionality to a shared library for tc and m_ipt from Jan and Jamal Hadi Salim - another patch to make libiptc available as shared library. Some distributions have been carrying patches for this despite being explicitly unsupported. The library does not guarantee a stable API, but it should make life for distributors a bit easier. - IPv6 support for the recent match from Jan - TPROXY support by Krisztian Kovacs - SCTP/DCCP NAT support by myself And lots of smallish changes, almost 90% of which are from Jan. Check out the Changelog for more details. This release starts enforcing the deprecation of NAT filtering that was added in 1.4.2-rc1, filtering rules in the NAT tables will cause an error instead of a warning from now on. Please make sure your rulesets are update appropriately. Version 1.4.3 can be obtained from: http://www.netfilter.org/projects/iptables/downloads.html ftp://ftp.netfilter.org/pub/iptables/ git://git.netfilter.org/iptables.git On behalf of the Netfilter Core Team. Happy firewalling!
