Shorewall 5.1.6 Beta 2 is now available for testing.

Problems Corrected since Beta 1:

1)  http://www.shorewall.net/shorewall_extension_scripts.htm states
    that $SHAREDIR and $CONFDIR can be used in extension scripts, that
    has not been true for some time. Beginning with this release, those
    variables are once again available in the generated script.

2)  Under very rare circumstances, when OPTIMIZE level 8 was used,
    messages such as the following could be issued during compilation:

    Use of uninitialized value in hash element at
       /usr/share/shorewall/Shorewall/Rules.pm line 818.
    Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at
       /usr/share/shorewall/Shorewall/Rules.pm line 823.

    That has been corrected.

New Features since Beta 1:

1)  The two new run-time extensions scripts (enabled and disabled) have
    been enhanced

    Like all run-time extension scripts, the contents of each script
    are placed in a function body. In the case of these new scripts,
    the function is passed arguments:

        $1 = the physical name of the interface
        $2 = the logical name of the interface
        $3 = the name of the Provider, if any, associated with the
             interface.

Thank you for testing,

-Tom
