Shorewall is now available for download.

Problems Corrected:

1) The change in Shorewall 4.5.4 that cleared the 'default' table if
     there were no 'fallback' providers broke multiple 'fallback'
     providers that don't supply a weight. The symptoms were that there
     were host routes to the default gateways in the 'default' routing
     table but no default routes through those gateways.

     This has now been corrected and multiple 'fallback' routes are once
     again supported.

2) When a logical device name was specified in the REDIRECTED
     INTERFACES column of /etc/shorewall/tcdevices, that name was used
     in the generated script rather than the devices's physical
     name. Unless the two were the same, this caused start/restart
     failure. Shorewall now uses the physical name.

Thank you for using Shorewall,
