Distribution Release: IPFire 2.25 Core 141



  • IPFire is an independent Linux distribution designed with firewalls and routers in mind and features a web-based interface for easy remote administration. The project’s latest release updates several base packages and reworks DNS lookups. “IPFire is a modern distribution as we change and update many essential system components regularly. That allows us to keep you safe, support new features and of course be fast by taking advantage of modern hardware. In this update, we have rebased the system on GCC 9 and added support for Go and Rust. We have included Python 3 to the base system and deprecated Python 2 which is out of support by now. Not everything has been converted to use Python 3 yet, but we will hopefully soon be able to drop support for Python 2 altogether. Unfortunately the system is growing larger and larger with every update. Software in general is quite bloated although we are trying our best to keep IPFire as small as possible. On systems that have a 2GB root partition and many add-ons installed, disk space might be running out. This update clears a lot of files that are no longer needed. We have also improved stripping our binary files from debugging symbols which are not needed on a production system in order to keep those files smaller.” Additional details can be found in the project’s release announcement.
