Hi all,

Hopefully the last RC before the final release. Most major improvement 
is PLUGIN-support :-D


Version 1.8.7-RC2 (October 4, 2006)
+ Added Debian LSB3.1 header (MH)
* Sanity check is no longer performed with --help (MH)
- Deprecated Freeswan support in the main script. Code is now available 
via a (new) plugin although not supported anymore (Freeswan itself is 
obsolete anyway).
+ Added plugin support via iptables-custom-rules
* Changed several things in the LAN->INET rules
* MANGLE-table module is now always loaded
! Fixed several bugs in the LAN->INET rules
+ Enhanced HOST_BLOCK & MAC_FILTER rules
* Cosmetic changes

Grab it from

Please, test it well and let me know any issue's ASAP.
