The upcoming Core Update is available for testing: It brings an updated kernel, various package updates and bug fixes.
The IPFire kernel is now based on Linux 4.14.198 which brings various security and stability fixes in the network stack as well as improvements throughout the whole rest of the kernel.
In connection with this, the new Location database has received some bug fixes. Formerly, some networks could not be found in the extracted part of the database which was loaded into the kernel. This has been fixed and there will be no more false-positives for selected countries.
Connection Tracking Graph
We have extended the monitoring features of IPFire which introduce a new graph with the size of the connection tracking table. It shows how many connections are open at the same time and helps to debug any networking issues or overload.
In addition to that, the CPU graph has been fixed. An empty graph was rendered after the number of processor cores has changed.
- Updated packages: clamav 0.103.0, htop 3.0.2, nano 5.2, postfix 3.5.7
Please help us testing
I would like to invite everyone to help us testing this release of IPFire to iron out any potentially newly introduced regressions. If you do not have the time, please send us a donation to help us making IPFire better.
