The version 0.5.1 of Fail2Ban is available.

"Fail2Ban is written in Python. It scans log files like /var/log/pwdfail
or /var/log/apache/error_log and bans IP that makes too many password
failures. It updates firewall rules to reject the IP address."

This release fixes bugs discovered in 0.5.0 and add multi targets for
the log output including syslog. Default config creates an iptables
chain for each section.

Please do not forget to remove your previous 0.4.x version before
upgrading to 0.5.x and update your configuration file.

fail2ban-0.5.1 is still an unstable version but should work perfectly.
