IPFire 2.17 - Core Update 93 is available for testing
by Michael Tremer, August 12, 2015


the upcoming Core Update has been uploaded to the testing tree and will be ready for release soon. We would like to encourage the IPFire community in helping to test this release as best as we can so that we can release it as soon as possible.

This update comes with various security fixes in the Squid web proxy, the dnsmasq DNS proxy server and the Perl-compatible regular expressions library.

DDNS Client Update

ddns, our dynamic DNS update client, has been updated to version 008. This version is more robust against network errors on the path and server errors at the provider. Updates will then be retried frequently.


Updated packages

bind 9.10.2-P3, daq 2.0.6, dnsmasq 2.75, libevent 2.0.22-stable (moved to the core system from add-on), libpcap 1.7.4, nettle 3.1.1, pcre (fixes CVE-2015-5073), squid 3.4.14


cups 2.0.4, make 4.1, nano 2.4.2

The update can be installed as usual from pakfire. Please report any bugs to our bugtracker.
