Christmas is approaching and as an early gift we would like to give to
all those who are celebrating our brand new release IPFire 2.13 Core
Update 74. It comes with a bunch of minor updates and fixes some minor

Update to squid 3.3.11

The latest maintenance update [1] of the Web Proxy package squid has
been applied. The max. number of filedescriptors has again been
increased to 1048576 [2] and the issue that it was impossible for the
squid daemon to set the desired configuration value has been fixed

VPN service updates

The OpenVPN package has been updated to version 2.3.2 [4, 5].

strongswan, the package responsible for IPsec VPN connections, has been
updated to version 5.1.1 [6].

Increasing RSA key sizes

The HTTPS key and certificate that are used for communitcating with our
IPFire Web User Interface has been increased to 4096 bits. This follows
the general advice by various authorities. New installations will
automatically generate a bigger key.

We recommend that everyone updates to this version of IPFire as soon as
possible and would like to encourage everyone who downloads and uses
IPFire to get involved [8,9] in any way they can. Please consider
donating [10] or joining the project community!

Merry Christmas,
-The IPFire Team
