  - Update to version 5.2.8 (Upgrade your configuration)
    + Certain restrictions that apply to wildcard interfaces (interface
      name ends in '+') were previously not enforced when the logical
      interface name did not end in '+' but the physical interface name
      did end in '+'.  That has been corrected.
    + To ensure that error messages appear in the correct place in the
      output stream, stderr is now redirected to stdout when the
      configured PAGER is used by a command.
    + Since Shorewall 5.1.0, the Shorewall script has
      incorrectly removed ${SBINDIR}/shorewall, while the Shorewall-core script has failed to remove that file. Both scripts
      have been corrected.
    + Previously, the Shorewall CLI included a spurious hyphen ('-')
      between the product name (e.g., 'Shorewall6') and the version when
      printing a command output banner.
    + The shorewall-snat(5) manpage previously stated that a
      comma-separated list of IP address could be specified for
      SNAT. That statement was in error and has been removed. As part of
      this change, IPv4 Example 6 has been updated to use the
      PROBABILITY column.
    - New features
      + 'show tc' command now shows the classifiers associated with
      each interface (as displayed by the 'show classifiers'
      command). This integrated qdisc/filter information is also included
      in the output of the 'dump' command. This change deprecates the
      'show classifiers' ('show filters') command, as that command's
      output is now included in the 'show tc' output.
      + Shorewall6 has traditionally generated rules for IPv6 anycast
      addresses. These rules include:
      a)  Packets with these destination IP addresses are dropped by
      REJECT rules.
      b)  Packets with these source IP addresses are dropped by the
      'nosmurfs' interface option and by the 'dropSmurfs' action.
      c)  Packets with these destination IP addresses are not logged
      during policy enforcement.
      d)  Packets with these destination IP addresses are processes by
      the 'Broadcast' action.
      Beginning with this release, individual network interfaces can be
      excluded from this treatment through use of the 'omitanycast'
      option in /etc/shorewall6/interfaces.
      Note: This option was named 'noanycast' in earlier Beta releases.
      + Duplicate function names have been eliminated between the
      Shorewall-core lib.cli shell library and the Shorewall lib.cli-std
      + The 'status' command in Shorewall[6]-lite now precedes the
      configuration directory name with the administrative host name
      separated with a colon (":").
      + Tuomo Soini has contributed a macro that handles NFS v1.4 (no
      dynamic ports).
  - Packaging:
    + Add buildrequires for pkgconfig (missing)
    + Use macro for sbindir
* Sat Aug 22 2020 Bruno Friedmann <>
  - Update to version 5.2.7
    + **Upgrade your configuration**
    + Previously, it was not possible to classify traffic by destination
      IP address when using an Intermediate Functional Block (IFB) for
      traffic shaping. This is because such classification takes place
      before the traffic passes through the mangle PREROUTING chain.
      Such filtering is now possible by setting the 'connmark' option in
      the tcdevices file. This option causes the current connection mark
      to be copied to the packet mark prior to filtering, thus allowing
      the packet mark to be used for classification.
      This change adds a new CONNMARK_ACTION capability which is
      required to be able to specify the 'connmark' option.
    + The tcpri file now supports ?FORMAT 2 which inserts an SPORT
      column directly to the right of the PORT column. As part of this
      change, the PORT column is renamed to DPORT while allowing both
      'port' and 'dport' to be used in the alternate input format. See
      shorewall-tcpri(5) and for additional
    + The Simple TC document is now linked to FAQs 97 and 97a.
* Tue Jul 07 2020 Bruno Friedmann <>
  - Update to version 5.2.6
    + **Upgrade your configuration**
    + When compiling for export, the compiler generates a firewall.conf
      file which is later installed on the remote firewall system as
      ${VARDIR}/firewall.conf. Previously, the CLI on that firewall was
      not processing the file, resulting in some features not being
    - Default values for VERBOSITY, LOGFILE, LOGFORMAT, PATH,
      DYNAMIC_BLACKLIST and PAGER are not supplied.
    - scfilter file supplied at compile time.
    - dumpfilter file supplied at compile time.
      That has been corrected.
    + A bug in iptables (see
      prevents the '--queue-cpu-fanout' option from being applied unless
      that option is the last one specified. Unfortunately, Shorewall
      places the '--queue-bypass' option last if that option is also
      This release works around this issue by ensuring that the
      '--queue-cpu-fanout' option appears last.
    + The -D 'compile', 'check', 'reload' and 'Restart'  option was
      previously omitted from the output of 'shorewall help'. It is now
      included. As part of this change, an incorrect and conflicting
      description of the -D option was removed from the 'remote-restart'
      section of shorewall(8).
    + Previously, when EXPAND_POLICIES=No, chains that enforced ACCEPT
      policies were not completely optimized by optimize level 2 (ACCEPT
      rules preceding the final unconditional ACCEPT were not
      deleted). That has been corrected such that these rules are now
* Thu Jul 02 2020 Bruno Friedmann <>
  - Update to version
      Previously, ";;+" was mishandled in the snat file; the generated
      rule incorrectly included the leading "+". That has been corrected
      so that the generated rule is now correct.
      Example (SNAT OpenVPN server traffic leaving on eth0):
      SNAT(    -      eth0     ;;+ -p udp --sport 1194
    - The change in 5.2.5 base which changed the 'user' facility to the
      'daemon' facility in Shorewall syslog messages did not change the
      messages with severity 'err'. That has been corrected such that
      all syslog messages now use the 'daemon' facility.
    - The actions.std file contains "?IF...?ELSE...?ENDIF" sequences
      that provide different action options depending on the availabilty
      of certain capabilities. This has resulted in the Broadcast and
      Multicast options being listed twice in the output of
      "shorewall[6] show actions". Beginning with this release, this
      duplication is eliminated. Note, however, that the options shown
      will be incomplete if they were continued onto another line, and
      may be incorrect for Broadcast and Multicast.
    - A typo in shorewall-providers(5) has been corrected.
    + 5.2.5 Base
    - Previously, Shorewall-init installed a 'shorewall' script in
      /etc/network/if-down.d on Debian and derivatives. This script was
      unnecessary and required Debian-specific code in the generated
      firewall script. The Shorewall-init script is no longer installed
      and the generated firewall script is now free of
      distribution-specific code.
    - Also on Debian and derivatives, Shorewall-init installed
      /etc//NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/01-shorewall which was also
      unnecessary.  Beginning with this release, that file is no longer
    - Previously, if the dynamic-blacklisting default timeout was set in
      a variable in the params file and the variable was used in setting
      DYNAMIC_BLACKLIST, then the 'allow' command would fail with
      the message:
      ERROR: Invalid value (ipset-only,disconnect,timeout=) for
      That has been corrected.
    - When EXPAND_POLICIES=No in shorewall[6].conf, policies in complex
      rulesets are enforced in chains such as 'net-all' and
      'all-all'. Previously, these chains included redundant
      state-oriented rules. In addition to being redundant. these rules
      could actually break complex IPv6 configurations. The extra rules are
      now omitted.
* Tue May 26 2020 Bruno Friedmann <>
  - Update to bugfix version
    + The description of the 'optional' option has been expanded in
    + Previously, the AUTOMAKE option did not work properly when
      /etc/shorewall[6] was a symbolic link. That has been corrected.
  - Packaging
    + Remove broken %pretrans, move content to %pre
    + Remove use of %release in rpm scriptlet
    + This will avoid constant rebuild.
* Thu Apr 30 2020 Bruno Friedmann <>
  - Update to bugfix version
    + When DYNAMIC_BLACKLIST=ipset... or when SAVE_IPSETS=Yes in
      shorewall[6].conf, 'shorewall[6] start' could hang. Fixed.
    + 'shorewall[6] start' would not automatically create dynamic
      blacklisting ipsets. That has been corrected.
  - This version will served also as maintenance upgrade for Leap
* Wed Apr 22 2020 Bruno Friedmann <>
  - Update to version
    + Fixes for debian
  - Update to version
    + Fixes for openSUSE shorewall-init
    will now ignore 'start' and 'stop' commands, for running firewalls
    + Spurious messages have been removed
  - Packaging
    + Move /usr/sbin/shorewall to shorewall-core so -lite version
      doesn't need main shorewall package
    + To make shorewall remote-* command working we patch lib.cli-std
      to use /usr/sbin instead of /sbin + commented spec
    + Desactivate for the moment the upgrade warning. we need to
      find a 100% working solution.
    + use %{var} form everywhere
* Tue Apr 14 2020 Bruno Friedmann <>
  - Add perl-base as buildrequirement to force choice of SHA-DIGEST
    new problem in TW
  - To fix boo#1166114 never restart shorewall-init.service
    macro service_del_postun is replaced by simplier systemd_postun
  - Remove conflict between main and lite package.
    A managing station need main to build configuration and can use
    - lite to execute it. Users are in charge of choosing which
    service has to be started and used. ❤ Freedom
* Sat Apr 04 2020 Bruno Friedmann <>
  - Remove shorewall require from shorewall-init (was a forgoten
* Tue Mar 31 2020 Bruno Friedmann <>
  - Update to version 5.2.4
    + Previously, when a Shorewall6 firewall was placed into the
      'stopped' state, ICMP6 packets required by RFC 4890 were not
      automatically accepted by the generated ruleset.
      Beginning with this release, those packets are automatically
    + Previously, the output of 'shorewall[6] help' displayed the
      superseded 'load' command. That text has been deleted.
    + The QOSExample.html file in the documentation and on the web site
      previously showed tcrules content for the /etc/shorewall/mangle
      file (recall that 'mangle' superseded 'tcrules'). That page has
      been corrected.
    + The 'Starting and Stopping' and 'Configuration file basics'
      documents have been updated to align them with the current product
    +  The 'ipsets' document has been updated to clarify the use of
      ipsets in the stoppedrules file.
  - Packaging
    + shorewall-init package has a removed %service_del_postun
      macro to close bug boo#1166114 Restarting this service can
      lock down admin out of the system.
    + shorewall(6) and shorewall(6)-lite conflict has they shouldn't
      be installed together on the same system.
    + conf_update flag is set to 1 to activate update reminder
    + Adjust and cleanup requires
* Sun Mar 15 2020 Bruno Friedmann <>
  - Add version to requires in -lite version
* Wed Mar 11 2020 Bruno Friedmann <>
  - Update to minor bugfix version
    + When DOCKER=Yes, if both the DOCKER-ISOLATE and
      chains were not preserved through shorewall state changes.
      That has been corrected so that both chains are preserved if
    + Previously, the compiler always detected the OLD_CONNTRACK_MATCH
      capability as being available in IPv6. When OLD_CONNTRACK_MATCH
      was available, the compiler also mishandled inversion ('!') in the
      ORIGDEST columns, leading to an assertion failure.
      Both the incorrect capability detection and the mishandled
      inversion have been corrected.
    + During 'enable' processing, if address variables associated with
      the interface have values different than those when the firewall
      was last started/restarted/reloaded, then a 'reload' is performed
      rather than a simple 'enable'. The logic that checks for those
      changes was incorrect in some configurations, leading to unneeded
      reload operations. That has been corrected.
    + When MANGLE_ENABLED=No in shorewall[6].conf, some features
      requiring use of the mangle table can be allowed, even though the
      mangle table is not updated. That has been corrected such that use
      of such features will raise an error.
    + When the IfEvent(...,reset) action was invoked, the compiler
      previously emitted a spurious "Resetting..." message. That message
      has been suppressed.
  - Packaging
    + Do not provide anymore unsused notrack file
    + Introduce define conf_need_update to track when we activate the
    post update warning for users when there's minor or major version
    update of shorewall bnc#1166114
* Mon Feb 17 2020 Bruno Friedmann <>
  - Update to bugfix minor
    + Fix for possible start failure when both Docker containers
      and Libvirt VMs were in use.
* Mon Feb 03 2020 Dominique Leuenberger <>
  - BuildRequire pkgconfig(systemd) instead of systemd: allow OBS to
    shortcut through the -mini flavors.
* Thu Jan 23 2020 Bruno Friedmann <>
  - Update to bugfix minor
    + A typo in the FTP documentation has been corrected.
    + The recommended mss setting when using IPSec with ipcomp
      has been corrected.
    + A number of incorrect links in the manpages have been
    + The 'bypass' option is now allowed when specifying an
      NFQUEUE policy. Previously, specifying that option resulted
      in an error.
    + Corrected IPv6 Address Range parsing.
    + Previously, such ranges were required to be of the form
      [<addr1>-<addr2>] rather than the more standard form
      [<addr1>]-[<addr2>]. In the snat file (and in nat actions),
      the latter form was actually flagged as an error while in
      other contexts, it resulted in a less obvious error being
