Release Notes

This is the official release announcement for IPFire 2.19 – Core Update 113. The change log is rather short, but comes with a big new feature:

Who Is Online?

Who Is Online? (or WIO in short) has finally arrived on IPFire. It has been ported by the original author Stephan Feddersen and Alex Marx and is available as a usual add-on package called wio.

It is a builtin monitoring service for the local network showing what devices are connected, which ones are online and can also send alarms on various events. Give it a try!
