Software Update: Pi-hole Core 5.11 / Web 5.13 / FTL 5.16

Spread the love

Version 5.11 of Pi-hole Core has been released and three minor updates have also been released. Also be Pi Hole Web 5.13 and FTL 5.16 hatched. Pi-hole is an advertising-aware dns and web server intended to run on a Raspberry Pi in the network. If Pi-hole is referenced on the router for dns handling, all devices on the network will automatically use it without any settings needing to be changed. Then ads are no longer fetched, which makes pages load faster. Potentially, it can also keep malware out. For more information, we refer you to the explanations and videos on this pageor this manual from tweaker jpgview. The changelogs for the three separate modules can be found below.
