netfilter-announce is home to the software of the packet filtering framework inside the Linux 2.4.x and 2.6.x kernel series. Software commonly associated with is iptables.

Software inside this framework enables packet filtering, network address [and port] translation (NA[P]T) and other packet mangling. It is the re-designed and heavily improved successor of the previous Linux 2.2.x ipchains and Linux 2.0.x ipfwadm systems.

This mailinglist is not really a means of contacting the netfilter/iptables project, but rather a way of the netfilter people contacting and informing their users about new releases, bugfixes, potential security issues.

We strongly advise all netfilter/iptables users to subscribe this list. It is very low volume, usually only one message every couple of months.
