July 22, 2008 - The IPCop team is proud to announce the Final 1.4.20 Release today!

IPCop Linux is a complete Linux distribution whose sole purpose is to protect the networks on which it is installed. It is extremely easy for anyone to install and configure. Frequently, the IPCop firewall can be installed within 10 to 15 minutes.

IPCop is a SmoothWall look-alike and is based on original SmoothWall GNU fork.

Update is splitted in two part because of a kernel update to accomodate free space limitation.
1.4.19 contain some packages updates, most notabily a dnsmasq update to be immune on recent dns advisory.
1.4.20 install the second part of the kernel update and configure the new kernel.
1.4.19 could be installed separately from 1.4.20. A reboot is not needed after 1.4.19 installation.

Concerning the dns issue, see more details in here:
It is very likely anyone need to a patch without waiting and our is in 1.4.19 for dnsmasq.
The dns server you use need to be patched too or you may switch to opendns.

You need to reboot to use the new kernel after 1.4.20 installation.

As usual, this version can be installed as an update from previous v1.4.x versions or with a ready-to-go ISO or usb bootable images for a fresh install.
ipcop-avmdrv-2.4.36-1.i386.tgz.gpg is needed to install for avm drivers users.

The date on the machine where the update is installed has to be good.
If date is in the past, signature is considered in the future and update will refuse to install.
You would have only the 'This is not an authorized update' message warning on web interface.

fcdls package is unchanged from 1.4.15

An iso for alpha is provided again for 1.4.20 release. It is intended that starting from 1.4.12, alpha version will be released in the same timing as i386 version. No update from alpha v1.4.0 version will be published as the gap is too much important. You would have to backup and install again.
