Release Notes: There is an improved GUI, support for high availability firewall configurations with Linux, OpenBSD and PIX, and many other new features.
Release Notes: This is a major upgrade. It comes with support for high availability firewall configurations, including heartbeat, vrrpd, keepalived, and conntrackd on Linux, CARP and pfsync on OpenBSD, and PIX failover configuration. It can generate configuration scripts to manage IP addresses, VLAN, bridge, and bonding interfaces on the firewall. Drop-in support for OpenWRT firewall script is now available, as well as experimental integration with IPCOP firewall appliances. The has supports undo and redo of unlimited depth and was generally streamlined and improved.
Release Notes: This release fixes a security issue with temporary file handling in the generated iptables script that affects only Linux systems where Firewall Builder is used to generate static routing configuration. It also significantly improves the performance of batch compile operation, and fixes a few other minor problems. All users are encouraged to upgrade.
Release Notes: This is a bugfix release. It comes with improvements in the GUI to fix problems with printing of large rule sets and additional optimization in the generated iptables and PF configurations.
Release Notes: This is a bugfix release that improves program stability. It is recommended for production use, and everyone is encouraged to upgrade. deb and RPM repositories are available; the "stable" repositories now host packages v3.0.5-b1076.
Release Notes: This version includes numerous bugfixes as well as improvements in the built-in policy installer, SNMP discovery, support for IPv6 for all platforms, and policy compilers for iptables and PF. Generation of static routing commands for Cisco IOS and PIX has been implemented. This is a stable version to which all users are encouraged to upgrade.
Release Notes: Problems with storing IPv6 addresses on FreeBSD have been fixed. GUI stability on operations of copying multiple objects between different data files has been improved. The parser for Cisco IOS configurations can now import configurations with a wider range of constructs. Support for non-ASCII characters in the RCS commit comments has been implemented.
Release Notes: The built-in installer now uses scp (pscp.exe on Windows) to copy files to the firewall, which makes it work much faster. Optional data file compression was implemented. Support for pure mangle table rule sets for iptables was added. Significant improvements were made in the speed of the shadowing detection for all compilers (up to five times on large linear policies). There were numerous bugfixes and improvements in the GUI and policy compilers.
Release Notes: This release includes numerous usability improvements and stability fixes. Among others, a fix is provided for the old annoying problem that caused the program to think that something in the data file had changed right after opening while there were no changes.
Release Notes: This version introduces support for IPv6 for iptables, PF, and Cisco IOS extended access lists. Users can generate both IPv4 and IPv6 policies using the same GUI and the same database of objects that represent network addresses and services. Firewall objects can have any number of policy and NAT rule sets, which can be used for branching rules or to generate user-defined chains (iptables) or anchors (pf) that can be used by external scripts. The GUI has been improved with the addition of the ability to group rules in policies, as well as control the size of icons and fonts.
