[Announce] ANNOUNCE: strongswan-2.8.7 released

for those of you who are still using the strongSwan 2.8 branch,
there is a new maintenance release offering the following
two improvements implemented upon user request:

- If a DynDNS lookup failure occurs when resolving right=%<FQDN>
   [or right=<FQDN> combined with rightallowany=yes] then the
   connection is not updated by ipsec starter, thus preventing
   the disruption of an active IPsec connection. Only after the
   DNS lookup successfully returns again with a changed IP address
   the corresponding connection definition will be updated.

- Re-introduced the USE_XAUTH_VID compile option in Makefile.inc
   because some Windows VPN clients do not like the the XAUTH VID
   if the eXtended AUTHentication is not going to be used. The
   default value is USE_XAUTH_VID=true.

These two features have of course also been included in our active
strongSwan 4.1 branch as an incentive to consider migration ;-)

The new release is available from our site


or directly via the link


Best regards
