Posted by LinuxSecurity.com Team   
EnGarde Guardian Digital is happy to announce the release of EnGarde Secure Community 3.0.8 (Version 3.0, Release 8). This release includes several bug fixes and feature enhancements to the Guardian Digital WebTool, several updated packages, and several new packages available for installation.

The following reported bugs from bugs.engardelinux.org are fixed in this release:

    * #0000024 Kernel 2.6.14.3 is out
    * #0000026 PHP5 packages are not compiled with MySQL support
    * #0000049 Perl 5.8.8 is out.

    * #0000071 Issues creating new mail addresses...
    * #0000072 WebTool Log Refresh
    * #0000074 WebTool Package List 
Several other bugs are fixed in this release as well.

New features include:

* A new Italian translation of the Guardian Digital WebTool, courtesy of Vincenzo Ciaglia. To use this translation go into to the WebTool Configuration module, click on your username (normally 'admin'), and select Italian from the drop-down.

* A new "Guardian Digital WebTool API Guide" document on engardelinux.org. This document is intended for people who are interested in extending the Guardian Digital WebTool by writing new interfaces/modules and for people who are interested in using the API for other applications. This document was written by Ankit Patel with contributions from Ryan W. Maple.

* Updated PCI tables and better detection of more recent hardware.

* Updated glibc (2.3.6), kernel (2.6.17.7), and perl (5.8.8) packages.

* The latest stable versions of asterisk (1.2.10), bacula (1.38.11), clamav (0.88.3), gdb (6.5), gnupg (1.4.4), john (1.7.2), mrtg (2.14.5), postfix (2.2.11), procps (3.2.7), samba (3.0.23a), snort (2.4.5) and zaptel (1.2.7).

    * A couple of new packages:

     * freepops (0.0.99)
       FreePOPs is a daemon that acts as a local pop3 server, translating
       local pop3 requests to remote http requests to supported
       webmails.

     * hwdata (0.177) and pciutils (2.2.1)
       hwdata contains various hardware identification and configuration
       data, such as the pci.ids database and MonitorsDb databases.  The
       pciutils package contains various utilities for inspecting and
       setting devices connected to the PCI bus.

     * perl-Authen-Smb (0.91)
       This package supplies a perl module for authenticating against an
       SMB password server.

     * squid (2.6.STABLE1)
       Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for Web clients,
       supporting FTP, gopher, and HTTP data objects. Unlike traditional
       caching software, Squid handles all requests in a single,
       non-blocking, I/O-driven process. Squid keeps meta data and
       especially hot objects cached in RAM, caches DNS lookups, supports
       non-blocking DNS lookups, and implements negative caching of
       failed requests.
All new users downloading EnGarde Secure Linux for the first time or users who use the LiveCD environment should download this release.

Users who are currently using EnGarde Secure Linux do not need to download this release — they can update their machines via the Guardian Digital Secure Network WebTool module.
