Windows Firewall Notifier update: v. 2.5 Beta
Release 2.5 Beta · wokhansoft/WFNAbout this release
This is the first beta release of WFN 2.5, with huge changes:
- migrated to .NET 5.0 (the alpha went through .NET Core 3.1 first, but 5.0 was here so... why not)
- new layout and design.
- fixes and improvements.
- an important one (do not miss it!): Notifier will now run in the background and will stay open, if you enable notification. This fixes all CPU related issues, and multiple Notifier.exe process spawning as well. Please tell us if the "old mode" was best for you, I might reintroduce it later.
- libraries updates (note: the used libraries and dependencies will be added soon in the about page - the main change being Oxyplot for the bandwidth graph instead of a custom one).
You can either pick the AnyCPU build (if you already have .NET 5.0 installed), or the x64 / x86 builds depending on your CPU if you want a standalone version (which also offers better performance).
Please note that the IP database is always embedded, if you'd like a lighter version without it, feel free to tell.
As usual, this is a beta release, not all cases have been tested and you might encounter unexpected behavior. Please report them in the Issues page (or open a new discussion through the new GitHub feature if you have some ideas, improvements, and so on!).
