Today, we’re pleased to announce the release of Technology Preview 2 of our upcoming product Linux Security 7.00. In July we released Technology Preview 1, and since then we’ve been doing our best to work towards our goals for the next major release. Many of us have been on vacation on and off during the last two months, so as usual during the summer the activity is a little bit lower than other times of the year. Still, we’ve added a couple of new features since the last technology preview:
- Firewall rules can now be applied to any interface
- We have a first stab at GNOME Nautilus integration using the Nautilus Actions extension
Not all changes are visible though, we’ve also been working with quite a few “under the hood” changes. There are some major performance improvements in the pipeline, but unfortunately they didn’t make it to this preview build. The same disclaimer applies as with the last Technology Preview, even though stability should have improved: preferably test this in a virtual machine environment or a non-critical machine that you don’t mind crashing.
