Gibraltar Firewall 2.6, a Linux firewall distribution based on Debian, was launched yesterday as announced by Rene Mayrhofer. This will be the last release that will use the Linux kernel 2.4, as the next Gibraltar editions will use the 2.6 kernel. Among other things, this edition of Gibraltar offers improved traffic shaping performance (the iptables marking rules were re-ordered and the pre-defined traffic classes were improved), and allows SSL Explorer plugins to be installed. Have you ever used the Gibraltar Firewall? Gibraltar provides the user with a web interface for setting up their firewall. Now it's available for the Linux 2.6 kernel. Also in this release they added full WLAN access point functionality.
