As some of you know, I have been working on some improvements to major packages in SmallWall for some time. mainly software updates, and a major rewrite of the component dynamic DNS is based on. These things go very slowly. As I go I have been importing small changes as well, and not really thinking about it...
So, the other day a friend asked when I was releasing a new beta. I told him about how the major updates were just taking time, and so I had not pulled the trigger yet. He said, "So?" and paused long enough for me to feel uncomfortable, and then said "Isn't that what SVN is for? So you can release as you go?" At this point I decided that my friend really was a jerk. But also right!
So, 1.8.4b10 is now out. It has Updated mini-httpd to current. Import large batch of patches from t1n1wall. Add MTU fields. (r20,21) Add clear Log buttons (r23,26) VPN sorting (r25,26,27,28) Check all to user groups (r31,32) Add IPv6 ping to console (r31) Add ledindicator support (r36,37,38,40) Add /usr/bin/fetch (r40) Change block size to 512k (Sokris support) (r42) Clear WAL build warning (r49) Fix spd diag display bug (r58) Fix missing EOL in racoon.conf (r64) Fixes for ipsec and lt2p (r64,65,r70)
I am still working on more, and will be trying to release a few over the next month. I would love to release 1.8.4 final on the anniversary of 1.8.3!
