the latest release of the strongSwan 2.7 stable branch is available
for download from


strongswan-2.7.1 fixes the following three minor bugs:

- Calling ipsec up|down|route|unroute with a non-empty connection name
  caused pluto to crash. As a fix argument checks have been added both
  to the ipsec command on the sender end and pluto/rcv_whack.c on the
  receiver end.

- reactivated the PPP pointopoint code in starter/interfaces.c which
  creates an ipsecN interface when used with Linux 2.4 KLIPS.

- replaced free() by curl_free() in pluto/fetch.c thus fixing pluto
  crashes occuring on some 64 bit hardware platforms when curl couldn't
  successfully resolve a DNS request prior to fetching a CRL.

Best regards
