Release and vulnerability announcements for strongSwan

strongSwan 5.0.0 Released

We are proud to release strongSwan 5.0.0, featuring a new IKEv1 implementation within the charon keying daemon and several other improvements.

Monolithic IKEv1/IKEv2 keying daemon

The charon IKE daemon gained support for the IKEv1 protocol. This means that both protocols are now handled by a single daemon.  Our wiki provides information about interoperability and the migration from earlier releases.

More details can also be found in a previous blog post.
