There are some addons in the testing tree which are not being released
today because we haven't received enough feedback on them to release

sooner we can go ahead and release them to the general public.
We recommend that everyone updates to this current version as soon as
possible. Without a doubt, this is the best version of IPFire that has
ever been released. If you think so as well, please consider donating to
the project. If you can't afford to donate, there are some other ways
you can help and get involved as well.
