Today, the IPFire development team released the 67th Core Update for IPFire 2. This update comes within the usual 4-week schedule and brings various bug fixes.
With IPFire 2.13 came a new kernel based on Linux 3.2. The wireless drivers were taken from Linux 3.6 and subsequently, some users reported that their hardware did not work as well as it had previously.
With this core update, the wireless drivers have been grabbed from Linux 3.8, where numerous problems have been fixed and also new hardware support has been added.
Please note that a reboot is required to make use of the new drivers.
The driver for ASIX USB network adapters has also been updated to version 4.5.
The installation of a new IPFire system on a SmartArray controller previously would fail because the disk size could not properly be determined. This issue has been fixed in this release.
We recommend that everyone updates to the latest version. Without a doubt, this is the best version of IPFire that has ever been released. If you think so as well, please consider donating to the project.
