This is official release announcement for IPFire 2.25 - Core Update 150. A brand new update with a new kernel, various package updates, bug fixes and a new Connection Tracking Graph.

Please donate to help funding our development work, so that we can further improve IPFire and bring you new features.

Linux 4.14.198

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.

Connection Tracking Graph

In addition to that, the CPU graph has been fixed. An empty graph was rendered after the number of processor cores has changed.
