the latest strongSwan 4.2.5 release is available from


and contains a number of minor improvements and bug fixes:

- Consistent logging of IKE and CHILD SAs at the audit (AUD) level.

- Improved the performance of the SQL-based virtual IP address pool
   by introducing an additional addresses table. The leases table
   storing only history information has become optional and can be
   disabled by setting charon.plugins.sql.lease_history = no in

- The XFRM_STATE_AF_UNSPEC flag added to xfrm.h allows IPv4-over-IPv6
   and IPv6-over-IPv4 tunnels with the 2.6.26 and later Linux kernels.

- management of different virtual IP pools for different
   network interfaces have become possible.

- fixed a bug which prevented the assignment of more than 256
   virtual IP addresses from a pool managed by an sql database.

- fixed a bug which did not delete own IPCOMP SAs in the kernel.

Best regards
