Hello editors,

this is a pre-announcement email to all editors out there who write about
IPFire. We would like to let you know, that we are planning to release Core
Update 120 of IPFire next Monday, Apr 30 between 14:00 and 16:00 UTC.

We are sending you this announcement to give you some time to prepare a news
article about this new release of IPFire to help us make IPFire better-known and
of course to make our existing users aware of this exciting new update being
ready to be installed.

The changelog can be found here:

I would like to highlight that we have been rebasing the entire distribution to
OpenSSL 1.1.0 to support latest and most secure cryptography for all components
in IPFire like VPNs, the web proxy and many other things. We have also enabled
our powerful web proxy feature to run in RAM only. That will allow content-
filtering without caching on systems with a fast internet connection and slow
local storage.

Please get in touch if you have any further questions.

We will send you the final announcement when the update is officially released.

Thank you very much for supporting our project!

Best regards,
