during update.

ERROR: Internal error in Shorewall::Config::detect_capability
This defect has been corrected.
2) Previously, if 'update' added a CONFIG_PATH setting to
shorewall[6].conf, that setting could contain "::" which could
then cause the next 'update' to fail. Now, the compiler correctly
handles double colons in the CONFIG_PATH setting.
3) Local zones (type 'local' in /etc/shorewall[6]/zones) are only
accessible from the firewall and from vserver zones. Previously,
the compiler generated superluous rules for handling forwarded
traffic from such zones; that has been corrected, and no
forwarding rules are now generated.
