Astaro Security Linux 1.795 is now available for downloading from www.astaro.com/products/download.html . All known problems have been fixed, except a few of minimal impact. If no further problems of major impact come up, this version will be equal to the final 1.8 release.
Evaluation copies of Astaro Security Linux 1.793 can be upgraded to 1.795 by backing up the configuration, installing the new software and re-importing the saved configuration in the section "System->Backup" of WebAdmin. (This export/import does not work if you are using the pre-defined RFC-xxx-networks.) We will provide Up2Dates to upgrade from 1.795 to 1.8.
If you want to upgrade from a 1.74x version to 1.795 (1.8) we offer to translate your backup-file. Therefore please send us an PGP-encrypted email to firstname.lastname@example.org including the backup-file and your license-key.
New or updated/corrected features since 1.793
- Source NAT: Translates the source IP address from a private (internal) IP address to a public (external) IP address and keeps a table of these translations.
- Logfile cleaning: Logfiles are being removed, if the harddisk is running out of space.
- Newest software: Newest versions of Linux, IPtables and FreeS/Wan have been integrated.
- Known bugs have been fixed for the ICMP, VPN and DNAT functionality.
- WebAdmin and the online help have been updated.
We decided to delay the release of PPPoE and DHCP because we were not able to complete the testing. The next release will include these functions.
