Today, we are releasing the 64th Core Update for IPFire 2.11. This
update brings some minor software updates and fixes several bugs.

The Intrusion Detection program snort has  been updated to version
2.9.3.1. The corresponding daq library to  version 1.1.1. This enables
snort to work with the latest VRT ruleset  and fixes some minor bugs.

Outgoing firewall: The broken MAC rules have been fixed
(https://bugzilla.ipfire.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10223).
It was impossible to use the MAC rules, to allow hosts to access the
internet. A bigger rewrite of the code fixes this problem and makes the
outgoing firewall a bit more performant.

Minor bugs & feature enhancements

* Update accelerator: The path to the delete icon has been fixed as
reported by Jörn-Ingo Weigert.
* pakfire can now use the XZ compression algorithm for the package
payload.
