Hi all,

Here it is: 1.9.0-final-OFFICIAL. It has some minor changes compared to 
the unofficial one.

You can grab it from:


Version 1.9.0 (January 7, 2009)
+ Some more fallback safeguards
! Fixed LAN_INET_HOST_DENY_TCP/UDP (stupid typo)
! Trimmed too long log messages
* Set timeout/retry values to default for dig functions in the env-file
! Fixed sysctl for ie. busybox setups which don't support -q. 
Implemented sysctl wrapper for this (like with module_probe())
+ Added new traffic shaper (thanks to Lonnie Abelbeck)
- Removed old hfsc traffic shaper
+ Added net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_max as additional sysctl key
+ Added AIF:-prefix to all LOG messages
+ Added ENV_FILE fallback in case it's not specified in the config-file
+ Enhanced the environment file to make it more robust in case config 
stuff is missing
- Removed <=2.2 kernel check
! Minor fix in the init script
! Fix bug in the install script which broke setting basic config
* Disabled verbose by default in the init script (set VERBOSE=1 inside
   /etc/init.d/arno-iptables-firewall to enable again)
* Misc. plugin updates
* Misc. tweaks in the install script
