The netfilter coreteam presents:

     iptables version 1.4.2-rc1

The first release candidate for iptables 1.4.2.

The major change in this release are some scalability improvements
from Jesper Dangaard Brouer that should greatly increase ruleset
parsing performance with many chains. Besides that we have some
minor bugfixes, manpage updates, case insensitive string match
support (requires current -git kernel) and --goto support for

Version 1.4.2-rc1 can be obtained from (please note that the
webpage hasn't been rebuilt yet, but will be sometime soon):


The plan is to have a final 1.4.2 release shortly before 2.6.27
is released.

On behalf of the Netfilter Core Team.
Happy testing!
