firewalld 0.5.0 release

A new release of firewalld, version 0.5.0, is available.

This release is significant because it deprecates the firewallctl command. This secondary CLI is a fair maintenance burden and doesn’t provide anything useful over firewall-cmd other than aesthetics.

Regarding developer related changes, firewalld has gained autotest support. Now you can do a “make check” to run the testsuite. This has been integrated with travis-ci so every push to master and PR automatically runs the testsuite.

Major changes

  • firewallctl: mark deprecated (#261)
  • new test framework with travis-ci integration
  • SUSE ifcfg support

New services

  • nmea-0183
  • syncthing
  • monogoDB
  • upnp
