Hi Everybody!

The netfilter core team proudly announces:

	The new netfilter/ipables project homepage.


as well as the old locations:


  As we all know, the old homepage was quite OK for a small development
project during the 2.3.x series, where only developers would access the

  Since 2.4.x is considered stable, and distributions ship the kernel,=20
we get more and more users - and thus the website is accessed mainly by
ordinary users these days.

  On June 06, 2001 the netfilter core team made a call for volunteers
looking for a webmaster doing the design.  Our choice was Shane Chan.

  He did a great job, but unfortunately there was some misunderstanding
about the tools to be used and some other technical details.  I've now
taken the original HTML design by Shane and written some 400 lines of perl
code to handle the HTML generation from templates, scoreboard handling, etc.

  So finally, in the beginning of 2002, about one year after 2.4.x was=20
released, the netfilter project gets its new homepage.

Thanks to everybody who helped, especially Shane.

Live long and prosper
