We would like to announce the availability of COMODO Firewall Pro 220.127.116.116.
What is New ?
FIXED! VPN Clients can now connect to VPN servers while CFP is installed
FIXED! cmdagent.exe no longer consumes 100% CPU64 Mb RAM
FIXED! System reboot no longer takes too long when CFP is installed with some other security software, e.g. avast!
FIXED! CFP can now find the application behind a connection (for example Kaspersky web scanner)
FIXED! “System Idle Process” is now changed to “Windows Operating System” to describe application less traffic (So no more “System Idle Process” in CFP)
FIXED! Internet Connection Sharing (ICS): CFP is now compatible with ICS servers (users will be required to answer some popup alerts)
FIXED! System performance has been improved
FIXED! Defense+ no longer allows some applications to modify a protected file if it is not allowed
FIXED! Eliminated 8.3 path conversion and its associated duplicate entries/not remembering my answer problems (e.g. for BOClean or AVG)
FIXED! If CFP.exe is active, trying to rerun cfp.exe will activate the currently active CFP.exe instance now
FIXED! Accidental BLOCK/ALLOW for image execution popups are NOT remembered through out the application life time anymore (This means if an application is blocked/allowed from being executed without remembering, it will be asked again).
FIXED! Default global rules for NON-P2P mode has now been changed to allow various incoming ICMP messages that affects windows updates and trace routing applications
FIXED! New application signature database has been introduced; the size and format has been significantly changed to prevent false alerts from some AV programs
FIXED! Crashes while opening help file from the GUI links have been eliminated
FIXED! Crashes related to password protection dialog have also been eliminated
adding: people be careful, do not attempt to upgrade directly from the GUI, or you’ll still be downgraded to old 18.104.22.1688 version. I thought it could happen, and it did lol. Better to uninstall completely and do a clean install with the new version, and may be deactivate the auto-update function for a few days still.
ps. an ICS new setting is activated by default in the firewall settings, should be optional.
that’s not a patch, that’s a full new version (= old one patched). I prefer the uninstall and reinstall way, better for eventual stability issues. Overwriting the old version might work though.
sorry I must correct this post: there are actually also patches with links that appear at the bottom of Egemen’s post. I didn’t bother reading the whole message, my bad. these patches don’t seem to concern the latest beta that we’ve been testing, only the previous official release and an older one too (RC1?).
