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 the next IPFire release, IPFire 2.25 Core Update 141, next Monday, February 24th, between 10:00 and 14:00 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. We are very grateful for your support for our project!

In this release we redesigned DNS. We removed loads of older code and setup options and they are now all combined on one new page. We then added features to improve privacy like DNS-over-TLS and QNAME minimisation:

Safe Search can now be enabled to filter any adult content from search results on YouTube and many search engines:
