[ANNOUNCE] ipset 6.11 released

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I'm happy to announce ipset 6.11, which brings a couple of build fixes 
from Jan and a timeout bugfix for the hash:net,iface type where the timed 
out entries were still matched until the garbage collector erased them.

The new version includes two new features as well:

- The hash:*net* types support the "nomatch" flag for the entries,
  by which one can build up a set with exceptions. For example the set

	ipset create test hash:net
	ipset add test 192.168.0/24
	ipset add test 192.168.0/30 nomatch

   matches all IP addresses from 192.168.0/24 except the ones
   from 192.168.0/30. 

- Escaping notation added to support hostnames and service names with dash 
  in the name: such names must be enclosed by square brackets

	ipset add test [hostname-with-dash],[ftp-data]

Userspace changes:
 - Support hostnames and service names with dash
 - Exceptions support added to hash:*net* types
 - Set types moved into libipset library
 - Library map file added in order to support library versioning
 - doc: Linux 2.6.39 already has the defs (Jan Engelhardt)
 - build: install libipset in the right place (Jan Engelhardt)
 - Provide a pkgconfig file (Jan Engelhardt)
 - build: make distcheck work and use POSIX mode for tarball generation
   (Jan Engelhardt)
 - build: install libipset/linux_ip_set_list.h (Jan Engelhardt)
 - build: include libipset/nfproto.h (Jan Engelhardt)
 - build: process include/libipset/ (Jan Engelhardt)
 - build: use AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR and stash away tools (Jan Engelhardt)
 - Update .gitignore (Jan Engelhardt)

Kernel part changes:
 - hash:net,iface timeout bug fixed
 - Exceptions support added to hash:*net* types
 - net: Add export.h for EXPORT_SYMBOL/THIS_MODULE to non-modules
 - Log warning when a hash type of set gets full
