The Open Source Firewall – IPFire 2.27 – Core Update 173 Released: What’s New?
Get ready to experience the best of IPFire 2.27 – Core Update 173! Not only is this update introducing support for 4G and 5G modems that utilize the QMI interface, but also includes a kernel freshly picked from 6.1’s stable series as well as an array of package updates, security enhancements, and bug fixes so you can be sure your device is always up-to-date with the latest improvements!
The final update for 32-bit ARM devices running IPFire is being released at the end of this month. It’s time to migrate your installations over to a supported hardware architecture if you haven’t already done so; otherwise, you risk missing out on important updates and features!
We are excited to announce the arrival of QMI support in IPFire! Qualcomm MSM Interface is a proprietary interface used for 4G and 5G cellular modems, and now with this Core Update, IPFire will be able to connect with these types of modems. It’s never been easier or faster – you won’t have any compatibility issues. Special thanks go out to Michael, who worked hard on refactoring various aspects of networking code as well as adding this feature.
