Start64!Michael Tremer today, April 14, 2016, announced the release and immediate availability for download of the 100th Core Update of the IPFire 2.19 Linux kernel-based firewall distribution.

IPFire 2.19 Core Update 100 appears to be the project's first ever release to work natively on 64-bit (x86_64) hardware architectures. Until today, the IPFire distribution was available for download only as an installable ISO image containing 32-bit software packages, along with an i586-compiled kernel. The 100th Core Update of IPFire 2.19 is also available for the ARMv5tel architecture.
