IPFire 2.13 - Core Update 73 comes with a bunch of smaller bugfixes and
updates. The most important ones of these are updates of the squid web
proxy server, openssh and the PHP Hypertext Processor. It is recommend
to update as soon as possible.


squid 3.3

The squid web proxy server has been updated to version 3.3.10 [1]. The
most notable changes since the current version of squid running in
IPFire are better SMP scalability, an updated logging infrastructure and
fixes all over the place.

The transparent mode has been dropped in favour of the more general
intercept mode, which requires a different port than for the transparent
mode. There is no intervention by the user required, when updating your
IPFire system, as the a new port for this service will automatically
chosen and configured.

Also, the default number of file descriptors has been increased for new
installations.


php 5.3.27

PHP has been updated to version 5.3.27, which fixes a whole bunch of
bugs as usual. Modules for ZIP and sqlite2 are compiled in now.


Misc. changes

* openssh has been updated to version 6.4p1.
* Wireless Client: You can now use an apostrophe (') in the SSID string
  (#10427). There has also been some help added for the priority option
  (#10428).
* Static Routes: Fix validating IP addresses (e.g. 10.0.0.0 was
  recognized as a wrong IP address).
* Formerly [2], when a network interface for the blue or orange network
  zone has been assigned, but blue or orange were not enabled, various
  CGI scripts crashed. This has been fixed now.
