Fedora Update Notification

Name        : ipset
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 6.14
Release     : 1.fc18
URL         : http://ipset.netfilter.org/
Summary     : Manage Linux IP sets
Description :
IP sets are a framework inside the Linux 2.4.x and 2.6.x kernel, which can be
administered by the ipset utility. Depending on the type, currently an IP set
may store IP addresses, (TCP/UDP) port numbers or IP addresses with MAC
addresses in a way, which ensures lightning speed when matching an entry
against a set.

If you want to:
 - store multiple IP addresses or port numbers and match against the collection
   by iptables at one swoop;
 - dynamically update iptables rules against IP addresses or ports without
   performance penalty;
 - express complex IP address and ports based rulesets with one single iptables
   rule and benefit from the speed of IP sets
then ipset may be the proper tool for you.

Update Information:

New upstream release, refer to the [upstream changelog](http://ipset.netfilter.org/changelog.html).

This also fixes the [scriptlets for the shared libraries](https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:ScriptletSnippets#Shared_libraries) which were set on the main package, rather than on the libs subpackage.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update ipset' at the command line.

available at http://docs.fedoraproject.org/yum/.
