Packages for Ubuntu Hardy i386

I installed virtual machine with Ubuntu Hardy i386 and will build .deb packages for this architecture from now on (again). Packages for the latest development build v3.0.4 build 724 are now available for download from the nightly builds site at
http://www.fwbuilder.org/nightly_builds/fwbuilder-3.0/

The latest set of OS and architectures I build binary packages for is as follows:

Ubuntu Hardy i386
Ubuntu Hardy amd64
Ubuntu Intrepid amd64
Fedora Core 9 i386
CentOS 5.2 i386

I think I can add a couple more virtual machines on this server, contact me with requests.

Firewall Builder v3.0.3 released

This is a bug-fix release. Problems with storing IPv6 addresses on FreeBSD have been fixed. GUI stability on operations of copying multiple objects between different data files has been improved. Parser for Cisco IOS configurations can now import configurations with wider range of constructs. Support for non-ASCII characters in the RCS commit comments has been implemented.

One of the most important changes in this release is also one of the smallest and was the simplest to fix: firewall script produced by the policy compiler for iptables used to have "executable" bit set in its permissions in versions prior to 3.0.2. However this was broken in 3.0.2, and is now fixed again.
