 === General Network
+The man:dummynet[4] system facility had an out-of-bounds bug fixed as well as a bug regarding he validation of the length of socket options.
+The man:ipfilter[4] packet filter added the `SDT` and `DT5` man:dtrace[1] probes. It has grown the capacity of dumping a copy of ippool in ippool.conf format. From now on, man:ipfilter[4] only allow jails to manipulate ipfilter rules, NAT tables and ippools if the jail has its own VNET to improve security. A number of other improvements have been implemented.
+The man:netmap[4] framework had a fix for a TOCTOU vulnerability as well as a bug regarding an integer overflow.
