-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
A new snapshot, `0.0.20170223`, has been tagged in the git repository.
Please note that this snapshot is, like the rest of the project at this point
in time, experimental, and does not consitute a real release that would be
considered secure and bug-free. WireGuard is generally thought to be fairly
stable, and most likely will not crash your computer (though it may).
However, as this is a pre-release snapshot, it comes with no guarantees, and
its security is not yet to be depended on; it is not applicable for CVEs.
With all that said, if you'd like to test this snapshot out, there are a
few relevent changes.
== Changes ==
* device: disable ICMP redirects
We now no longer send ICMP redirect messages when forwarding packets between
two WireGuard peers on the same interface.
* socket: do not try to create v6 socket when disabled
This allows WireGuard to work on systems booted with ipv6.disable=1.
* wg-quick: allow config files without trailing newline
* tools: give "off" value for fwmark
* tools: fix bash completion spaces
* tools: add wg show [interface] dump
The wg(8) command learns a new way of dumping information, which should be a
boost for script writers.
* contrib: add wg-json utility
Using the aforementioned new dump command, it's trivial to transform into JSON
using a bash script, so this is provided as an example.
* extract-keys: respect compat directives
The extract-keys helper now builds with the new compat system, which should
enable wireshark dissectors and such to work.
As always, the source is available at https://git.zx2c4.com/WireGuard/ and
information about the project is available at https://www.wireguard.io/ .
