Is this Abandonware? No update in 5 years makes me think so.

Super neat! I have used Brickhouse in the past (like, 10.2 past) and this pref pane looks to be a simple, powerful, convenient way to have more detailed management over my firewall. It certainly beats what Apple has built in and it is not as intimidating as editing the raw firewall tables. Very nice!

A new version (surprisingly 1.6) which adds support for Tiger is currently undergoing beta testing.

Because it is beta, and as usual is somehow a risk to a healthy system, it is available if you know what you are doing and want to help testing the build.

Not many new features and main thing is inded Tiger. I had to tweak many things, for for the time being, this build is not supported on Pre Tiger systems.

Check the website's forums, or send me a mail to get more info.
