Please welcome "PeerGuardian Linux 2.3.1"!
Containing a lot of maintenance and a fix for messed up
iptables. Let's hope it will soon be succeeded by a new
version with the more important stuff.

Please welcome "PeerGuardian Linux 2.3.0"!
One year, really? We're still alive and even have some
plans for the future. The current release contains
mainly old changes that accumulated the whole last
The default blocklist setup changed to a lighter one
with Bluetack lists: TBG has been dropped because
it isn't updated on iblocklist anymore. Search the web
to learn how to continue to get them. Instead we are
back to some Bluetack lists, although probably with a
less paranoid selection. Everybody is strongly
encouraged to do his own research on the quality of the
several blocklist providers. Then you can select the
correct blocklists based on your own personal needs.
Removed the (non-default) feature to directly DROP
and ACCEPT packets (as in MoBlock 0.8), instead of
using the (default) MARKing feature.!

Please welcome "PeerGuardian Linux 2.2.4"!
Fix for pglgui port whitelisting issues in
peerguardian now is in Mageia Cauldron! Thanks,
and I'd like to collaborate more with them!

Please welcome "PeerGuardian Linux 2.2.3"!
After nearly an year of development we are proud and
glad to offer a new release of pgl. This version has
native systemd integration, better local blocklist
support, an overhauled pglgui and a lot of bugfixes.
Finally I dropped the transitional packages from
moblock, blockcontrol and mobloquer to pgl.
Added packages for Debian Jessie and Ubuntu Trusty
May 2 2013
Added packages for Ubuntu Raring (13.04) and Saucy
(13.10), dropped Hardy (8.04), Natty (11.04) and
For the latter Ubuntu stopped official support
(effective as of 2013-05-09), so you are advised to
update to a more current release.

moblock-deb goes peerguardian
This project (moblock-deb) is simply an extension to
the project peerguardian. It's about the same software
(pgl, the Linux version of PeerGuardian, both
predecessor and successor of moblock) and it has the
same staff (which needs help by you, btw!). To reduce
the burden of maintaining two projects I moved all
documentation from here to the peerguardian project.
Also from now on all user and developer interactions
should happen at the peerguardian project. So
everything except the Debian repository is now at the
peerguardian project. Don't worry - the Debian
repository will be updated here, even if you don't see
any other changes here.

Please welcome "PeerGuardian Linux 2.2.2"!
This is mainly a bug fix release.
As some of you may have noticed, the peerguardian
and the moblock-deb
project here at sourceforge have migrated to the new
SourceForge 2.0 allura.
Please update your links and URLs, e.g. of the git

Please welcome "PeerGuardian Linux 2.2.1"! This
version adds the last feature only present in
mobloquer, but not in pglgui: "whois information about
Since I also fixed or workarounded all issues with
older Debian and Ubuntu versions, including the
"reload" bug, I added transitional packages for the old
moblock/blockcontrol/mobloquer packages. This means the
Debian/Ubuntu world now moves to pgl automatically.
(Except the 2008 Ubuntu Long Term Release Hardy which I
think is ok to be left behind forever ;P )

PeerGuardian Linux 2.2.0 "The autotools release"
released. Welcome our new Gentoo maintainer
hasufell, who implemented this stuff!
Binaries built under Ubuntu Precise and Oneiric are
still broken (pgld crashes on reload). I copied the
Natty packages to these PPAs at launchpad. Therefore
you can now use the normal repositories instead of the
Natty one again.
May 29 2012
New binaries for Ubuntu Oneiric (previously
broken) and Precise (12.04). EDIT: Still broken,
use the jaunty ones instead.
We're still alive, but we lost our old homepage
phoenixlabs.org. Don't worry, development and support
are now both located at the PeerGuardian

New project PeerGuardian Linux
There's a new project: PeerGuardian Linux (pgl),
located at the project
of the original PeerGuardian. The new project
combines and succeeds all projects that had packages
here. There's the daemon pgld (based on NFBlock, which
was based on MoBlock), pglcmd (based on blockcontrol,
previously moblock-control) and pgl-gui (by the author
All authors of the old applications and new authors
work on this new project. So the old projects are dead
