The Netfilter project proudly presents:

        nftables 0.8.2

This release fixes ./configure --with-xtables that enables interaction
between iptables-compat [1] and nft, and it also includes a bunch of
documentation updates.

This release introduces a new explicit option for interval sets, that
enables auto-merge of adjacent/overlapping elements when adding them to
the set, eg.

     table ip x {
            set y {
                    type ipv4_addr
                    flags interval
     # nft add element x z {, }


The nftables code can be obtained from:

* http://netfilter.org/projects/nftables/downloads.html
* ftp://ftp.netfilter.org/pub/nftables
* git://git.netfilter.org/nftables
