IPFire Linux-Based Hardened Firewall Gets New Intrusion Prevention System

Filed under
Linux
OSS

The most exciting thing about the IPFire 2.23 Core Update 131 release is that is ships with a new Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) that deeply inspects packets and prevents threats, thus making your networks more secure. IPFire previously used Snort as default Intrusion Detection System (IDS), but now it's been replaced with Suricata.

"This new system has many advantages over the old one in terms of performance, security and it simply put - more modern. We would like to thank the team at Suricata on which it is based for their hard work and for creating such an important tool that is now working inside of IPFire," explains developer Michael Tremer in the release announcement.

Dev branch moving towards Qt 6

As you know, Qt 5.14 will be branched pretty soon. After that I would expect that most new development work would start to be aimed towards Qt 6. As it looks right now, 5.15 will be a smaller release where we polish what we have in 5.14, and prepare some things for Qt 6. To reflect that and help us all understand that the development focus is now towards Qt 6, I would like to propose that dev becomes the Qt 6 branch after we branched away 5.14 (and we merge wip/qt6 back into dev). We can then either create a 5.15 branch at the same time, or slightly later, once 5.14 has stabilised a bit more (e.g. after the beta or RC).

Tilda: A Great Dropdown Terminal

If you need a full sized, full featured persistent terminal that appears and hides at a single keystroke, Tilda is your friend. Like most Free Software, it has too little documentation, and some conflicting documentation out on the web. That's OK, with this document make Tilda do a heck of a lot of what it was designed to do. This document didn't cover multiple Tilda instance or transparency, but I'm sure both will be easy for you to achieve with a little web search and experimentation. Read more
