This is from the -STABLE's UPDATING: 20010109: ipfw interface changed. Make sure that the userland and kernel match or you won't have the firewall rules you think you do. 19990620: IPFW uid/gid-based filtering support has been committed. This breaks binary compatibility with previous copies of ipfw(8). Any utilities using the ioctl()s of ipfw (especially ipfw(8)) need to be recompiled with the newest headers installed. 19980725: The ipfw interface to the kernel has changed. You will need to recompile ipfw programs for the new kernel.
