the latest strongSwan release 4.1.7 offers you the following
new features:

- Preview of strongSwan Manager, a web based configuration
   and monitoring application. It uses a new XML-based control
   interface to query the IKEv2 daemon


- An experimental SQLite configuration backend will provide
   the configuration interface for strongSwan Manager in future

- Added a "forceencaps=yes" connection parameter to enforce
   UDP encapsulation to surmount restrictive firewalls.
   NAT detection payloads are faked to simulate a NAT situation
   and trick the other peer into NAT mode (IKEv2 only).

- Further improvements to MOBIKE support.

A user reported the following long-standing bug in the IKEv1
keying daemon pluto:

- In NAT traversal situations and multiple queued Quick Modes,
   those pending connections inserted by auto=start after the
   port floating from 500 to 4500 were erronously deleted.

This bug has been fixed with this release.

As always strongswan-4.1.7 can be downloaded from
