IPFire 2.27 Core Update 161 has been released as a new maintenance update to the hardened open-source GNU/Linux distro that primarily performs as a router and a firewall. The release brings exFAT support to IPFire and boosts the intrusion prevention system's performance.

IPFire 2.27 Core Update 161 introduces several new features, performance improvements, and some other important changes. For example, it brings support for the exFAT file system, support for the FriendlyARM NanoPI R2S open-source mini router, as well as Fast Flux Detection in the web proxy to proactively detect Fast Flux setups.

Among the performance improvements included in this update, there’s a large increase of throughput for the Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), allowing it to decide if the traffic from a certain IP connection needs to be seen or not and tell the kernel to bypass it.
