0.5.71 alpha 1 (2006-04-10)

  • Added a description to the Debian default file.
  • Added a separate DNAT action, which acts like the PORTFW action, but it creates rules in the nat table only. In the logs PORTFW rules now say 'PORTFW' instead of 'DNAT'.
  • Added a new action 'Bounce'. Bounce solves the problem that it isn't it possible to access NATed services by the public IP address from LAN. Normally this should be solved on dns-level, but that is not always possible in every environment.
  • Fixed a problem with rules from a group to the firewall where the firewall has more than one interface in the groups network.
  • Fixed two cosmetic issues in vuurmuur_conf.

0.5.70 (2006-03-29)

  • Fix small issue with 'Mark IptState?' toggle in Edit Rule window.
  • Fix typo in error message in Debian initscript.

0.5.70 alpha 8 (2006-03-27)

  • Fix scrolling issue in vuurmuur_conf logview.
  • Fix log parsing issues on Ubuntu Breezy and with some syslog-ng setups.
  • Fix portfw and redirect not using NEWACCEPT for rules in filter table.

0.5.70 alpha 7 (2006-03-12)

  • Fix interface filters for rules with both firewall and any in them.
  • fix wrong d_list_append calls
  • fixed a few memoryleaks in vuurmuur_script
  • add option --list-devices to vuurmuur_script so we can list the devices _and_ their ipaddresses in the wizard which will be created for 0.5.71. The ip command can also do this but on many systems it is not installed by default. The ifconfig command has different output with different localizations, which has bitten me in the past...

  • updated Russian translation by Alex.
